I arrived yesterday along with the bitter cold, wind and rain. I was lucky enough to get my room right away so I pretty much hibernated for the day. I realized I was exhausted so it was nice to have a break. Today, the 2nd, there is a group meeting at 6pm. The day is still cold but not as windy and rain is intermittent. I didn't venture very far but did head over to Rainbow Street which, during the day, is pretty dull. There are lots of restaurants but many only open for dinner. I assume this is because it is low season for tourism so that might play into it as well. The area is supposed to be a beehive of activity...oh, well. I grabbed a falafel sandwich and bought some snacks and headed back to the hotel. I have 2 English TV channels - CNN and a channel that runs old US programming and movies. Good things to watch on a miserable day. The weather starts improving tomorrow. I miss the sun!
