Spongebob and the lake
By admin | Jan 05th, 2011 | Uncategorized |
THE SEAS ARE STILL SO FLAT it’s like swimming in a lake, the biggest lake in the world, “Lake Pacific.” Today I swam 9.7 miles in 4.5 hours. Dr. Javi took me out of the water twice to take my temperature since the water is pretty cold. When my body temp drops below a certain level, I have to drink hot tea with honey before I can go back in the water, so I took two breaks today.
We were laughing because we take my temperature with a Spongebob thermometer (those of you who don’t know who Spongebob is, ask the nearest 7 year old). That thermometer has been across the Atlantic three times!
I know I keep talking about the food, but Sara’s cooking is so amazing it’s tough to leave it out. Tonight we had Hungarian chicken, which is stewed in tomatoes and the wrapped in pancakes and filled with sour cream. Needless to say, it’s enough calories to keep me going all day tomorrow!
Not much else to report, except maybe that I’m giddy with joy.
Talk to you tomorrow,
