Today was a relaxing / resetting day. I woke up at 3am and was perfectly awake. My body currently has no idea what day, time, or week it is. I’m hoping to take my boss’s philosophy of simply telling your body that it’s whatever time it is where you are, but I’m not sure. I have to get myself all reset as tomorrow we’ll be heading out on a four day safari.

After doing a bit of exploring where we are staying, we wandered down to the mall at the bottom of the street. To put it nicely, it kinda sucked. A lot. Grey, dull, and at least 50% empty.

Next up was a kilometre walk farther down the road to a much nicer mall. Full, 3 stories full of stores of every type. Basically a normal mall, just in a hot place. Got a couple of supplies for the safari tomorrow and wandered around before heading back to the house.

I cannot lie, it’s a gorgeous property, and after a couple of hours walking with the sun right above and no wind, a dip in the pool was in order, and it was glorious. The temperature of the tiles around it was hot enough to burn my feet, but the water temperature was a good Canadian “it’s great once you get in,” which completely hit the spot.

Dear sweet lord in heaven I’m white….
