Coming to a hotel was a good idea. It is very soothing being alone. I checked in, had a cup of tea in the nifty room, and then went a bought a swimsuit (with student discount!!) and a salad and some fruit for dinner. Before eating, I swam, only for half an hour, but it was wonderful. There were three other women in the pool quietly bobbing around and chatting but it still felt peaceful. There is something about being in water, maybe the buoyancy effect, but it is easy to think and ponder and to wind down.
Healthy meal, some rubbish TV and now a bit of pathophysiology.
