Are you going to eat that?
As I forced a smile and passed the crab leg, I cursed this decision for the thousandth time.
Let’s rewind shall we?
It was a lovely, mostly jet-lag free first day. Misty and subdued perhaps, but a good day nonetheless. I’d seen the museums and walked my feet off, which is always a tradition for me, since I’m usually lost.
What better way to finish off this cold day than in the aquarium? For those who don’t know, I love aquariums, and fish (fun sidenote: my name means “A Ships Harbor”). The blue light, the slow magic of floating, the sheer grace of swimming things? It slows my overactive mind.
I was ready for that sort of peace, but fate had other plans for me.
