Remember a few entries back I talked about the 'dream'? Well these next entries are going to add to it. Three quite different places, three unique dreams, three separate experiences and yet, somehow these three all speak to me as one thing.

Had a bit of an interrupted sleep from all the duff duffing from the nightclubs down the road, we set off down town to the local market, sensory overload! We ate some lunch but I'm a bit worried I will regret that! Lol wasn't the cleanest the cook was using an old scabby cloth to hold our tacos in, and I'm not sure how safe the meat was as I watched him get it out of a cupboard, not a fridge, not sure how long it had been sitting there for.. Really enjoyed ...
