... in contrast to most of the Asians we have met. They had suggested in the pre-trip literature that we might want to bring a small gift for the family, so we had picked up a couple of Gator coozies knowing how much bottled water is used here. We were the only ones in our group who had brought a gift, so I put one of them on a bottle of water to demonstrate their use. I then pointed at the mascot and did the Gator chomp a few times.

Back at the hotel Ali was still kit feeling well and we decided to have a nap and see if that helped. So we slept from about 1800 to 2100. By the time we woke up we decided we might as well skip dinner. We both have put on a little weight since we been here it it wouldn't hurt us to miss a meal. I'm sure we will make up for it ...
