Last night Ryan and I rode our bikes out around six searching for food. It wasn't an ordinary hot evening...We could see the clouds were getting thicker and darker, and the winds were blowing up the dust on the unpaved roads as the night's getting darker. We found an Indian restaurant and sat down for it wasn't easy to ride anymore. The food was OK, but what's more interesting was the thunder and the threatening of the coming storm outside. We finished our meal fast, so we could go back to the hotel before it poured. Well...Turned out, it wasn't gonna pour like it threaten to be and the rain was just like the water dripping from the sky...However, instead of going into the hotel room, we stopped and watched the amazing Lightening Dancing. So beautiful and powerful yet scary (to me) at the same time...the bright lightening went here and there over the sky and broke out like huge tree branches in about 0.3 second. wow, was it impressive! No rain, the storm turned out to be a paper tiger doing the evening dancing for us.
Today is a market day. We went out with our bikes and my job was to find me a cheap but workable watch, and Ryan's going for a bikeride, which he's been dreaming to do for a long while. So I started searching the whole market, trying to find what i want and with a nice price, and maybe a sunglasses for him. The morning market was actually pretty fun. There were two floors in it, the first floor was full of electronic stuff where i heard a bunch of Taiwanese mid-age travel group trying to find their dream rollex..es. The second floor was a great place to shop for clothes, well, i didn't have time for that....yet!
After about an hour i found myself a "cool" (according to Ryan, wonder what it really means..) adidas sports watch for 6 bucks and a nice looking (good enough) nike sunglasses for Ryan for 4 bucks. Satisfied for now, there, we (ok, I) spent all our leisure money for today already. Fakes stuff are fun!
The Hotel, actually a very nice Guest House, that we are staying is having a New Year party today...looking forward to that and hoping at some point we can get ourselves splashed! ;P
