Apparently my body still thinks I’m 13 hours ahead of where I actually am and it would like me to please fall asleep at my desk.
I have traveled more than 1/2 way around the world and it feels a bit weird to be in the office answering emails and knowing that when I want to go to the bathroom I won’t have to squat over a hole in the ground and have the promise of toilet paper. Ah…the simple things.
I am also drinking real coffee. Thailand is ripe with instant Nescafe, which works in a pinch but is no where near the perfection that is a real cup of fresh brewed coffee. I was lucky to have a coffee shop (called Happy Drinks) next to our hotel on the university campus that made espresso drinks–so on days I really needed/wanted a good cup of coffee, I could pop next store and get an americano for $1. I paid way more than that today at a local bakery for a great cup of coffee.
I am happy to be home, but having a hard time getting my brain awake enough to get some work done. I will suffer through today so that I can get my body back on track, even though all I really want to do right now is go to sleep.
