  • I ate breakfast; took supplements.

  • Talked with Heidi and worked online with her using VooV.

Want to buy a jar of honey? >>>

These are small jars. I've seen at least ten different street vendors selling these. They are sold like a snack. Just enough to fill you up, like an ice cream cone. I've never seen this in any other city.

Finally "organized"

My room is about as orangized as it's going to get. The one thing this hotel room does not have is a place to hang clothes. So I've just laid them out on the extra bed.

Two great books I'm reading now

The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain by Annie Murphy Paul

This a super book. Many non-fiction books that I read are a 99% refresher course for me. This one is only about 80% refresher. I'm learning some new and valuable stuff. One of the interesting, although maybe not valuable things I learned is why evolution designed us humans to fall so easily into the toxic confirmation bias. 

A Primate's Memoir: A Neuroscientist's Unconventional Life Among the Baboons by Robert Sapolsky

Although this is autobiographical, I'm reading it more for entertainment value, like I would read a novel. Robert's a great storyteller, detailing his living with a troop of baboons as well as his adventures and misadventures with the African peoples.

Giving up on getting a refrigerator or cooler

Originally, I thought a refrigerator was a must-have for my 23-day holiday. But how many people have successfully lived and died in the world without a refrigerator? Even my assistant Heidi, up until a year or so ago was able to do okay without a refrigerator and still cook well for herself. I just need to shop every day and be careful not to buy so much at one time in order to avoid spoilage. I can make that adjustment.
