Sick

sunny 5 °C

I wish I had a wonderful story to tell you all about my AMAZING weekend, but to be honest I have been in bed most of my weekend feeling sick! Friday was fun though, I went out for the fifth coffee of the day with Beatriz, the girl from Ecuador (and an Arabic guy, named Baker, who invited himself) and afterwards out for dinner with Alex as well. We just dodged in a suspicious looking alley and found a surprising posh restaurant with absolutely amazing tortellini! Coughed through most of my meal though... Afterwards we went to the only place in Perugia, except for the Irish pub, where you can have a drink at night. (We have searched the whole old centre for bars and cafés, but no result just yet.)

We went to the Pharmacia to get me some coughing syrup right after, it’s very charming asking someone that doesn’t speak any other language than Italian that you need a coughing medicine for annoyance in the throat…. (luckily Alex preformed the uncharming conversation for me). Had a very nice night sleep, found out the next morning why. Apparently they use the same information booklet for three different kinds of medicine and stupid tired me tried to read the subscription in the dark causing me to take double the advised doses the entire night (and of course I already took a bit too much, thinking it would work better that way). So when I reread the information in the morning I wasn’t surprised to find out why my mouth and especially my tongue had been numb the entire night…

Spend my Saturday in bed, only left it to get an apple and I finished my entire bottle of coughing syrup. Probably watched on overdose on television programs starting with an H. Sunday wasn’t that active either, watched about another 12 hours more of television, but I did managed to pull myself together to go out to buy some food (TIRAMISU ICECREAM, the only thing I craved and have eaten apart from a pack of crackers and an apple this weekend).
I actually did my laundry on Sunday! It is still hanging in the bathroom to dry and I did need Alex’s help to figure out how the machine worked. (In the end it was my suggestion that helped us figure out how it works: to plug the machine in is always a good idea)
About to start my classes in a bit and I just realized I forgot to do the only exercise I had for homework. Since overachieving me thought it was a fun idea to make all the exercises of the previous chapters, because I was bored, not realizing that in the next couple of lessons I would be stuck doing nothing all the time and having no homework because I already did everything.

I hope to get internet in the apartment soon, I was supposed to get it last week, but you know the Italian lifestyle, take it easy and get internet in the apartment when Berber has moved out ;) The sun is out though, no clouds and it is not even that cold, so the day is of to a good start!

Hoi Berber,
Jammer om het weekend in bed door te brengen,maar tijdens de lessen was nog vervelender. Hopelijk gaat het nu weer beter. De volgende keer zul je toch wel eerst de gebruiksaanwijzing lezen.De televisie is gemakkelijker te bedienen dan een wasmachine. Dus dat kun jij nu ook. Soms hebben we de jongens toch wel nodig !! Nog veel succes. Groetjes en kusjes uit Venlo
