So, on this rather long and empty Sunday in Quito, I find myeslf needing to work--and resisting it. For a break, here are a few observations:
1) Still concerned about how I'm getting all these books home:
2) Puzzled by water in Quito:
The bottle on the left I got in a restaurant, and it cost $1.30
The bottle on the right I got outside the archive, and it cost 40 cents.
Better yet: this 6 litre bottle cost about $1.20. ???? I don't get it either.
Another Quito thing: parquet floors in apartments. I guess I don't mind them completely, but it's annoying when some of the little pieces start rattling and coming out of place.
Quito also smells of over-polished floors. I have to be careful whenever I walk around my apartment in socks.
What do you notice when you are avoiding work?
