Day 27: Today Was A Rough Day

Where I get a 1.5 hour massage, have to eat delicious chocolate, and have long naps. Terribly hard, I know.

Firstly, I'll confront the obvious issue: I somehow time travelled and missed a few days here and there. I'll fess up and admit the real reason for this, as it's definitely not laziness: I am utterly exhausted from my relaxation massage, which I had to endure for close to two hours. I was drowned in grape seed oil and lulled to sleep by the gentle notes of "Lavender Radio." Pure torture. To add to the entire ordeal, as I was laid out prostrate on the massage table, I had nothing to think about but the vintage bookstore I found earlier in the morning, chalk full of books to sniff, and, most importantly, books to buy. Life was beautiful.

The massage shop was in a little mini mall across the street from a larger shopping centre, called Cavendish Place. The shop is owned and operated by a lady named Lily, who had came from Hong Kong to Capetown 9 years ago. She was working at an IT company in the city, and met her husband there. Since she had moved to South Africa 9 years previous, she hasn't been back to China, and hasn't seen her mom or anyone else in her family... Needless to say, with my propensity for being a mamma suck, and my umbilical cord being stretched upwards of 20,000 miles, upon hearing this fact, I broke in to hysterics. Let me tell you, when you are face down with your nose hanging through a hole, and you start crying, it's not pretty. I had rivulets of snot dripping in strings on to the silk flowers she had put under the table for a "beautifying effect". Classic.

My adventures for the day ended with a nap. And the nap turned in to a three hour long snooze fest. AREN'T MY ADVENTURES FASCINATING.

Checking out for today to sleep some more. Traveling, tough business I tell ya.
