I woke up in a pretty bad mood. I still hadnt managed to shake the terrible feeling of being robbed, so I showered, had a light breakfast and headed to an internet cafe to hopefully be cheered up by Ross. Well, it worked extremely well, and I wandered around the city in a much better mood. I came back to the hostel in time for a massive rain storm, read my book, and waited out the rain. Around 2 the rain broke, more or less, so another girl from the hostel and I decided to head to the market.

I had one thing on my mind: I knew I wanted a zapatista doll. Now, some of you may be wondering why I would want a doll of a violent, political organization. Clearly you dont know me at all!! So I got myself a Zapatista doll, for the shocking price of 1.50$. After much bargaining, of course. I kinda wanted the one on a horse, but it was pretty big, and would have been hard to hide in my luggage. hehe. I also bought a beautiful scarf for 4$. Gotta love cheap textiles. Im probably going to go back to the market tonight to get a few things that I missed out...a hat, and some presents for the folks back home. (Sorry, theyre surprises!)

Tonight Im meeting up with some Aussie folks (big surprise) and well arrange our travel plans for the next little bit. Yay travel companions!

What Im reading: Jack Kerouac. (I dont see what the big deal is yet...)

Costs for the day: Shopping extravaganza, 15$, food 18$ (including a coffee to help improve my mood!), hostel 5$.
