The hotel where we're staying is an absolute dump. Some rooms are missing light bulbs, the air conditioners don't work in the few rooms that apparently have them, there are five gallon pails in the tubs for bucket showers, some bathrooms don't have any water, some fans don't work and on and on. My room is okay, except the ceiling is dripping and I'm just hoping it's clean water not sewer water.
For supper we walked to the corner where there was all kinds of meat grilling: chicken of course but also turkey, beef with onions and peppers as well as gizzards. The street is dead in the day but packed at night. Africans have figured out that it's too hot to be out mid afternoon, something we haven't realized yet.
Tomorrow is Election Day and absolutely no vehicles are permitted on the streets and all business will be closed. That prevents us from heading to the border so it will hopefully be a nice restful day.
