Last night I wandered around until I found one of those cyber-cafe places where you can surf the net on a per minute basis. I grabbed a machine and checked my e-mail. I had message from my friend Mike, which was really cool. I also managed to go to a grocery store and bought some shampoo and a toothbrush, both of which I had forgotten (D’Oh!). Oh well, could be worse.
Had a lot of trouble sleeping again, must be the jet-lag. Hopefully tonight things will start to bed in (no pun intended).
The weather is still crummy, although at 2:00 PM local time it looks like its starting to clear up. I went for a long walk and found a place called Cyber-cube which will let me do text-based FTP for 1FF per minute. So the plan is to write my pages locally and save them to a floppy, then head down the street and upload them once per day-or maybe every other day. If you’re reading this it must have worked.
I also walked across the Seine to Notre Dame this morning, I didn’t climb the towers today though, I’m waiting for a nicer day to take some pictures. Also, the cathedral is only about ¼ mile from my hotel (I can see the towers and spires from my room) so I’ll be able to get back there without any trouble.
I still haven’t seen the Eiffel Tower, maybe tomorrow I have my first adventure on the Metro and ride over there. (Imagine early Berlin music playing in the background).
