Today has been no better :( Me and Manuel are still fighting for the loo. For him now, he just goes a few times in the morning and then he is ok for the rest of the day. He can eat and not need to go. So that means he is ok to go out the house. I am not at that stage yet...so I am still house bound. Its only been 2 days but already I am getting cabin fever. I have been sick now for the last 13 days...so nearly 2 weeks of nonstop sickness. First my tooth, then my swollen joints and now the trots. I just want to feel well again.
This afternoon lesh and Manuel decide to go on a bit of an expedition on the bikes. I feel so sorry for kit who has just been chained to a generator the last week. In th rain too....poor thing. So we raise my seat up so Manuel can take Kit out for a spin. They are both consulting many maps and talking about the different lakes that are around the city that they could cycle round. One is very close by but it has a main road round it so it is quite busy and not peaceful. Inya lake is huge and you cannot see the road from the lake so it I nicer....but a lot of the lake has no access other than on foot and some parts you cannot go to at all as this is where Aung San Suu Kyi is being held under house arrest. They even consider cycling to another lake which is not even on the map which is further past the airport. However since that means at least 50km worth of cycling in the hot sun they abandon that idea. They decide they want to check out the cinema to see if any new films are being shown, then they will go to the hardware shops to check out the prices of the water tanks and then after that they will cycle to some where in and around the city. It all sounds like a grand plan to me and I say good bye and settle myself down with my book. They are both gone for hours ad I am a bit peeved that by 3:30pm they have not come back so I can get some food. At 4pm they stroll in and they stink like a brewery. All that talk of do this and do that turned into nothing. They cycled to the cinema and saw that nothing new was on and then they went to the pub and brank beer for 2 hours. I wouldn't mind but they could have walked to the pub it is that close. The food they brout back was a greasy briyani and I can't face eating any of it. So I have a few crackers.
By 8pm I am finally starting to feel better and I want to venture out to use the internet so I can talk to my mum. I make my way out of the flat and I realised that I had been suffering from cabin fever. It was good to be out and about even if it is just walking to the internet café. Wen I get there I am told there is no internet in Yangon :( I try another place a bit further away and am told the same thing. So I go back to the flat depressed. I really wanted to speak to my mum and Sunday is always the best day to have a good long chat. I hate feeling this sick without being able to chat to my mum :(
