First of all, I apologise for the lateness of this update! I've been having a great time in Austin and have been in places without the internet so I've got much to catch up on
It was billed as being the finale to one of the greatest World Cups of all time, but in the end - what a damp squib. I'm reasssured that I haven't come across anybody yet who found the 0-0 stalemate for some 108 minutes at all entertaining.
Whilst all this was going on I put my things in for the wash. What a great idea eh? I certainly thought it was. However, the drunk driver who hit the fire hydrant outside the hostel had other plans. Even though this hostel sits on the banks of the Lady Bird Lake, there was a water cut to the whole block - that meant pretty much all of my clothes were locked in the washing machine! I was left with wearing some tracksuit bottoms and a hoody. I was left in this attire whilst the washing machine sorted itself out. Unfortunately, it was intolerably hot for someone dressed as I was so I spent most of today thinking through what I want to get up to over the next few days.
That'll teach me for wanting to be hygenic!
