Marty woke up feeling a bit better, though like me, he still has a cold. We went out for a light breakfast and bumped into Dirk, one of the people we met in Huay Xai. Then we walked in search of a book store. Along the way, I started feeling sick to my stomach so we went and sat in the shade and grabbed something to drink to recuperate. We then realized we forgot to take are malaria pills so we went back to the hostel to get them. Unfortunately, we passed a cock fighting ring some locals had made outside our hostel which was quite upsetting. Once in our hostel, we figured we'd take a quick nap.

Up again we caved and had our first Americanized meal since we've been here. We needed some comfort food... After lunch, sort of forcing it down, we found a used book store, bought books and found seats at a closed restaurant to read at for the afternoon. We grabbed dinner at our favorite restaurant but neither of us felt well afterward and so we both went home to bed to sleep and read for the night. Hopefully tomorrow we will feel better an have a more eventful day.

Hopefully the quiet day will be sufficient rest, so that you can return to your adventurous vacation.

Sorry you guys are still under the weather. On the other hand, a quiet day reading by the water....sounds ideal to me!
