Dear Virtual Friends,
I woke up drooling my bed and I know that that is something I should be ashamed of. Now, how am I supposed to leave this bed? I realized that I woke up because the room seemed to be bright. It’s the morning light. It’s beautiful though. I reached for my watch since I can’t see any wall clock here and it was 7:30 in the morning. In my head, I was like, “darn I should still be
asleep right now!” (I am still sleepy since I slept 2 am)
Later, we woke up then took breakfast. We were served by Phoebe with a black and white rice cakes (the white one is better) and really nice local coffee, which was followed up by some fresh lettuce and pickled cucumber.
As we were eating, I and Phoebe had a conversation which really stirred me up. I realized, speaking with older people who have so much experiences is empowering, inspiring and encouraging, because knowing that these people have overcome all of it is knowing that all of us can too.
The highlight of the day is the fulfillment of my one-month-dream. After watching the movie Donnie Darko, I always dream of riding a bike till I get lost. Well, it happened today! I, together with Peter and Philip, rent some bikes and ride our way throughout the town and out of the town till we came to this remote place, where the view really took our breath away.
As we were biking, we didn’t notice the time. It was Philip’s graduation day and we could be late, so we rushed back and prepared for the ceremony.
