Didn’t do much today

I went to the internet cafe to try to download the new Battlestar Gallactica season. Turns out that everyone and their dog must have gotten an iPod or gift cards for the music store because it was operating at a crawl. While i was waiting to do that, I was sitting kind of funny and I think I pinched a nerve or something because it is now painful to walk around. Nothing too bad you understand, more of an annoyance than anything else. In any case, I didn’t get too far with my exploring today, I’m hoping a good night’s sleep and some pain killers will take care of it.

I have noticed something that I’m having a hard time getting used to. Not only do they drive on the “wrong” side of the street, but all the doors are confusing me to no end. For example, the sliding glass doors in my room have the handles on the outside edges. You grab the door at the outside edge and pull away from the center. It makes it so that you can’t open both at the same time. Noticed these same doors on a couple of places with patios. There are also a lot of places that the door only opens inwards, I keep trying to pull the doors open because that’s how they look, but no. And the food place around the corner has doors that you pull, but they really look as though you should push them. So I look like the brain dead American pushing and pulling in vain across town…
