Manhattan Detox

In IICD Massachusetts on July 26, 2007 at 1:37 am

                        If you look carefully, you can see where I accidentally painted the snake’s head- oops!

For the last two days (9am -7pm)
I have been outside in the heat
painting the Lodge (where I live and where many offices are housed).
It is such hard work. There are hornet nests everywhere, there are wasps, deer flies and snakes (the least of my worries).
I have paint permanently embedded in my nails, hair and skin. I am a mess!
(This Manhattan girl is missing padding around the village, lazy afternoon brunches, sipping wine with nothing in particular to do, movies at the Angelica and Sunshine, I think I even miss the sound of honking horns and the smell of bus fumes. Manhattan detox 101!)
Did I mention that I am exhausted and that my muscles ache severely. I can’t wait until my team starts so that I can go to classes and prepare for my work experience in Angola.
Manual labor is NOT my forte!

  1. Haha poor little guy! Angola sounds exciting, I’m jealous.
