... I haven't been able to do in a long time- I put on my joggers and my headphones and I run along the beach. I run until I feel like my legs are going to give out and until my thoughts are drowned out by the sound of my breath in my ears. Then when I'm exhausted, I find a set of stairs and run up and down them a few times, just for good measure.

... you know that the cinnamon tree roots smell like vics? And that is what the main ingredient is? Who would have thought? The second day we went for long walks along stone town and looked in the many shops. We ended up buying 6 beautiful paintings and we picked them up for a steal, at about $40 each.
