I doubt I have ever stayed at a hostel for a whole week. I am not such a youth hostel fan and I am too restless to stay anywhere for too long, but it was a perfect storm of events that kept me here at Sam’s. I would stay the weekend, too, if it wasn’t booked up.
I certainly have never stayed in two hostels over 12 straight days. Granted I was sick, but still.
There must be respiratory problems here amongst the women as everyone wears skin-tight clothes, but local hospitals have not reported a surge in admissions.
I went to Barichara today for the afternoon, about 40 minutes away. It is a very pretty colonial village, but so languid I watched the second half of Arsenal-Barcelona in a shop. This town must have some money from the upscale tourists because it was a small, nondescript shop selling the basics and patronized by salt-of-the-earth people, but it had a large flat screen TV for anyone who wanted to watch the game.
