Adventures in Daily Life...

I thought I'd take some pictures of my daily routine, before everything starts to look ... well, routine. I have class 4 mornings / week, so these are some pictures from what I do on schooldays.

When I leave my apartment, this is the road I walk down. The university is at the very end.
There is a baseball / cattle field on either side of the road.

As I get closer to the university, there's a cluster of snack carts and restaurants. Sometimes I get fresh fruit or an omelet here, and carry it to campus.

Just past the snack carts is the bridge that leads onto the campus:
I walk past green spaces and wet spaces before I get to my breakfast space.

I usually sit at a picnic table, enjoy the view, and either eat my fruit, omelet, or if I'm really hungry, pork & rice wrapped in a banana leaf:

After class, I have lunch with my friends from the Philippines. (One friend is missing, since she's taking the photo).
After lunch, I go home and rest. Sometimes, my mini lizard (who likes to play hide-and-seek) will have found a particularly clever place from which to surprise me.
After my heat-of-the-afternoon rest, I usually start my homework before heading out to find some dinner when it gets cooler.

There you have it. My daily routine.

What great pics! How long is this walk? Is this the only road to the university, or just the one you take. It seems pretty calm. :o)

Hi Deb,

This is the most direct route for me, and it takes about 10-15 minutes. (It would be less, but I'm walking really slowly in this heat!)

Awesome! Thanks for sharing the daily-ness.
