No Cherry Blossom Festival for me today. I didn’t wake up until sometime this afternoon. Was it 1:30 or 2:00? I don’t remember, I just know that I needed the sleep. I feel refreshed but sore. This bed is going to be the death of me and my knees are killing me from all the ladder ways on the boat yesterday.

Today is Chad’s only day off this weekend. We lazily get ready to head out so the maids can do their daily service. We don’t have an agenda for the day, instead enjoying our time together doing nothing. We’re both hungry, neither one of us having any breakfast, so we head towards More’s in search of something to eat. We decide on Gyu Katu, the BBQ place we went to with Pat Miyuki. Afredo, one of the Norfolk guys, told me it was on the 9th floor. We find it without a problem and set about ordering almost the same thing we had last week. The food is so good here I could eat it once a week and never become bored. 

After lunch we stop by the pet store on the 5th floor to see the puppies before getting ice cream at Baskin and Robbins. B & R has some of the same flavors as home as well as some regional ones like one made from red beans. Chad almost got the bean ice cream before I stopped him, knowing he wouldn’t like it. We ate our ice cream as we walked back to the hotel. Along the way we ran into Mike and Shelly for the second time. Mike works with Chad and Shelly, his wife, has been here for most of the project just hanging out like me.

We’re both tired, and without saying anything to each other we both decide to have a quiet evening in our room, just the two of us. We stop by the bar so I can get pick up some more sodas so Chad can make a drink in the room. Chad plays PS3 for awhile before putting in a movie and ultimately falling asleep. I run downstairs to get some vodka and then spend the rest of the evening on the computer checking email and writing an update.

The window is open (this room is so stuffy) and I can hear the voices of people down below laughing and having a good time. If you were to go to the bar in the lobby and look around you’d never know it was a Sunday evening and almost everyone there had to work in the morning. Most of the people working on this project seem to have the unspoken motto of work hard, play harder. I don’t know how they do it, I know I couldn’t. 

It’s been a marathon night for me, completing three blogs and getting them ready to post. I’ll leave that for tomorrow.

I love your comments so leave some!
