Car horns. House alarms. I’m pretty sure I heard the gnashing of teeth– it’s hard to tell because of all the wailing, dog barks and Bollywood soundtracks. Also, I can’t be certain, but I think someone lost a lung at about 5AM last night. And, I’m pretty sure there was a ceremony afterward.
Anna slept fine. So, that’s nice, but it makes me wonder what she’s seen, where’s she’s been and if Anna is her real name.
Swahili phrase of the day: “Ninajaribu kulala” — I’m trying to sleep.
