Well, I have been back in Basel for almost a week now and true to form I took an enormous nap today which Sleeping Beauty would have found hard to better. I started a yoga course this week and I went to my second class this morning. I actually felt physically sick by the end of it (I even followed through) and promptly came home and died. I like the classes though. I am amazed at the amount of different ways you can stretch just one leg. I feel like the great unbendy elephant of the school. Everyone else is very European and bendy, with raven brown hair and probably shuns cocktails in favour of chai. But I have hopes of becoming a little more bendy with time and hopefully finding more energy. Right now it seems to sap the life out of me - i had grand plans to come home and write for the rest of they day - but I was so zapped the only writing I have done is this desperate attempt to keep my blog alive.
On a side note, last night I had a very pleasing dream where I met up with a very wonderful friend ( whom i shall refer to only as Milly Mazda.) we met up in Hama, Syria, and went out for a very delightful meal before returning to the hostel to find Abdullah was running some sort of enormous folk festival there. Abdullah, by the way, is a very amusing (real) fellow who works at the Riad Hotel in Hama and has managed to acquire an Australian accent without having ever been there.
Btw have I said my sister is coming to visit this year - hooray :-)
