Wednesday 4th September 2013–Lunch at Asian Canteen

by Adam

I had lunch later than usual today.  Got a lift to lunch with Gala and Rob.  I walked into the Western Canteen, read the menu and walked out.  Went to the Asian canteen instead.  It was almost empty, the only people eating there were the staff, still wearing their hair-nets.  I had the best meal this swing.

The fish was good, the vegetables were good, the bread and rice were good.  I couldn’t finish it all.  I was feeling full but kept eating, because it was good.  I got back to the office and heard that the meal at the Western Canteen was not good.  I’ll go to the Asian Canteen again tonight, later Smile

This morning when I got into work, I was offered a pain au chocolat, it was much larger than the ones from the canteen.  I had it for morning tea.

Yesterday morning, there were nice clouds above the site.

I was out at site all day.  I looked down the lifting well where boxes of filter bags were being lifted up – not fun as I don’t like heights!

As I looked down, I also saw some close friends.

This is last night’s dinner, it was also a good meal.

Then on my way back to my room, I was talking to Shawn, while talking, I noticed a bright light shooting across the sky.  At first, I thought it was a plane, then I looked at it more and then it died.  A fireball in the sky!  I’ve heard about these before, but it was the first time I witnessed it!

I went to French class, then after French class, on my way back to my room, paused to look at the site, which looks like a city from afar!
