My alone day

Well my CS host was out for the day so I was left to my own devices. I had a fairly lazy but good day. You know I started my travels alone but, I haven't been truly alone in a long time now. I have been traveling with Ben for over eight months now but currently he is in Asia and he wont be here until January. So honestly it was nice to have a day just to myself to do what I want when I want and just be with myself. Some people hate that but I don't mind it every now and again. It is strange not having Ben here though.

After traveling together for so long now we obviously grew close to each other. In a way it was like a marriage haha. I mean we worked together, and spent a lot of time together along with traveling together so its an adjustment not having him here. We have a lot in common so it was nice to meet someone on my level and be able to travel with him. But, its not like I NEED to be with someone all the time. Obviously I came on these travels alone and I can do just fine for myself.

I spent my day tying up various bits and pieces and site seeing in the city I also saw a movie alone for the first time in a long time. I saw Red (an action/thriller/comedy with Bruce Willis and company) it was actually really good. I give it 4/5 stars. The movie tickets are crazy expensive here even with student prices I paid 14 dollars! But it was worth it just to go out and treat myself once in a while.For dinner I decided to get some ethnic food so I chose  a Korean restaurant and I was literally the only white person in there.

The only English I heard my entire meal was from my waiter haha. But, it was really good and cheap and  an interesting experience to change culture so rapidly like that. Before dinner and the movie I spent my time exploring the city so all in all a good day! I have a job interview on monday hopefully and I am looking for a cheap place to get long term accommodation and I might have found one. So wish me luck!

One last thing I thought I would mention/confess too. For as long as I can remember I have hated ice cream cones. I just never liked them and I always got my ice cream in a cup. For years and years. Well just recently in Australia I decided to go wild and get outside my comfort zone and try a cone. Not a really huge thing but, it was big for me haha. So I did. Too my surprise I really liked them! All these years I have been missing out on the deliciousness of the cone! and now the only mess I have to throw away is the napkin and the rest of it is edible :) Epic. 

Talk at yall later,Ty
