I awake to find my fist feels like I've punched somebody in the face.  Oh wait...I did.  as shabby as I am, and feeling like a freshly shat shit, I still manage to pour myself out of bed, regale friends with my tale of woe, and squint my way to the opticians. 

Thinking back to Leon, I remember the prices of specs were pretty good.  I took my glasses in to have them put a new nose thingy on, and was very nearly tempted to buy a new pair.  As a back up.  Just in case something happened to my ONLY pair of glasses.  The ONLY pair I brought for traveling around the world.  That are now missing.  Something tells me I need to improve my preparation for this adventure.  Climbing a volcano in converse and wrapped in a blanket should have taught me my lesson.

One small operation in San Juan Del Sur and they've got you by the balls.  $275 for one pair.  No thanks.  I'm tempted to pay outright just to get my sight back, but I'm told it will be six days before they are available.  I'm not planning on spending another six days in this...lovely, ocean-side, sleepy paradise.

Not really.  It's fucking shit.

Just in case you didn't get my sarcasm.
