VJC ~ Morning Aspirations

Equanimity… the wise, caring and creative acceptance of things as they really are.


I was woken in the night by a bad tummy again. Clearly, I caught too much sun the day before yesterday at Espadilla Beach leading to dehydration and heat exhaustion. Also, perhaps the dinner, hot sauce or ice-cream that evening may have been suspect.

I took a couple of Loperamide and some water. I feel exhausted and don’t have an appetite. I stayed in bed until late morning.

Perhaps not very mindfully, impulsively even, I took a stroll to the sea shore and enjoyed a paddle on the near deserted beach. But it was too hot and I hadn’t brought any water or a hat, so headed back to the hostel via the supermarket to buy a ‘Sports Drink’ and some salted crackers.

I slept most of the afternoon. 

Good night.

Budget costs:

  • Sports drink and crackers € 3
  • Room with private bathroom at Uvita Pirates Hostel booked through Booking.com € 33 per night.
