Cereal, glorious cereal
I woke up at Hostal de Sammy this morning, and went downstairs for breakfast. And oh my g-d, they have CEREAL!!! Unlimited, crunchy-as-can-be corn flakes, with delicious full-cream milk. I never thought, in all my life, that I'd get so excited over a bowl of cereal: but after 5 months of subsisting on the only things on the menu that they have for breakfast, further north — continental (bread, jam, juice, tea), or americano (same, with fried eggs) — it was like a dream come true. I couldn't stop eating the stuff (got through 3 bowls, no probs).
And I couldn't stop laughing, at how absolutely, desperately ecstatic I was to be recovering from my months-long cereal withdrawal. Amazing how the little things in life can make such a difference. Looks like after all the terrible things that happened to me yesterday, G-d has answered my prayers. Today's looking to be a very good day.
