    ... feel better but in the evening I started to get worse again ... So today I experienced a slice of local Dar life when I went to the local doctors ( the expat doctor is closed at the moment ) it was an interesting experience for sure, and I'm pleased a local came along with me as I would have had no idea where to go or what to do each time I needed to go to a different area and pay another lot of money.

    After a while Emilie appears and we go through everything that happened last night which is quite amusing. A few of the other English people come to the bar as well so we join the tables together so they can sit with us.As it gets to about 2:30, Theresa and I go back as we've got lessons this afternoon.
