Location: Nicosia, Cyprus

Map11:10 am....

my morning did NOT get off on a good start. Two of the things I dislike with a passion crossed my path: thunderstorms and bugs!

I woke up around 2 am almost screaming because I thought my hand was on fire. I mean, I know I like to joke around and teeeeeend to exaggerate on some things. But this mosquito did it real good. It didn't even occur to me that it was a mosquito bite (because this has happened to me twice since I've been here), until I went to the kitchen to grab some ice and then I saw the little red dot. Boy did this make me irritated. Darn mosquito! This one had a special poison for me. And when I woke up this was gone.

And theeeen, I woke up at 6 am to loud thunderstorms! Zeus is throwing a mad fit this morning. It rained almost all day on Sunday, and today it will be even worse. I actually don't see much rain, but the thunderstorms are louder than the ones I would hear in Mexico and the lightning could probably even blind you.

Now I am on my way to the library...where I will stay for the rest of the day preparing for a presentation tomorrow on The End of the European Empire and also study for the most important test of my life: the GRE!!!!!!!
