It was only a few hours ago that I finished up work for the
day and realized it was the first time since my true gypsy days that I had more
than a day off work… almost two in fact… and I wanted to make it count. And so
began 45 hours [and two minutes] of awesomeness!

stranger

foreign I’m not sure what it was or where it was from)
6) Play the marimbas in a public
place (Cape Town Waterfront)
7) Cycle the promenade
