Saturdays are our leisure days. We appreciated this when we realised that we had not had one day off since we had arrived.

Friday evening was date night with tons of chocolate (atleast it felt as such an amount) before I passed out and slept all night until the next day. We spent our Saturday with the cherishable tap – washing clothes, bedsheets, our hair and then, OUR FIRST shower since we arrived. It was lovely.

Afterwards, we sat and looked through some magazines we had brought – fashion magazines, glossy interior design magazines — it all felt so…distant, even surreal, despite the short time we had been gone.
