When I got to my hotel last night I was a little scared. It was dark and rainy, my room was all the way in the back of the building, and there were weird people sitting outside. I was planning to go to Walmart to get some food and drinks and other stuff I'd be needing for the next few days, but decided to stay in because I didn't want to walk past those people again. I talked to Dave on the phone for a while and then went to bed. It was only like 10:00pm here but it felt like 1:00am. I ended up waking up at 5:00am (equivalent to 8:00am back home, which is like sleeping in for 2 extra hours for me) went back to sleep and woke up again around 7:00am. I got dressed and went to Walmart. The neighborhood I'm in is not actually bad like I originally thought. Like two blocks away there is an amusment park, Knott's Berry Farm - America's First Theme Park, and tons of stores and restaurants and a mall! I feel much better now :)
I got all my groceries and have settled in a bit so now I am ready to head out for the day. Check out the venue, watch the white belts and blue belt males compete. I want to get my event t-shirt today too so that I can get a size small -- at last years Mundials I had to get a medium and I don't even wear it because it is too big :-(
Well, I'm off -- I'll take pics while I'm there and post them for you guys!
