Nias, Epilogue

April 10 2005
Spent the whole of last night looking for a spa to massage out the weary muscles, but most of the 'respectable' places were closed by the time we were ready to go out, after a much-needed bath - the first in while without having to worry about running out of the house with only a towel on if another aftershock hit. Then we were driving around looking for a pub. Settled for one at a hotel where a karaoke open night competition was in full swing by the time we got there. In between Bintangs, we were 'treated' to yodeling by one of the contestants. Quite surreal, considering where we had been the last few days.

We had a good soto breakfast and run a few errands. Then it was an hour at Carrefour for a bit of shopping.

***

The R&R has been good for my frazzled nerves -waking up at a decent hour for once, and having leisurely meals without having to worry about what's been planned for afterwards. Which is surprising because I hadn't been as stressed out as I was while in Meulaboh. The emotional doldrums from having come down from the adrenaline rush and emotional high appear to have passed.

I should be ready to get back to work soon.


End.
