Then there's the room... and the view! Andrew, David, and I are rooming together in the top floor (my breath is gone after taking those stairs - it's probably the altitude) and I was blown away by the view of the rooftops and the sky:
I’m excited to wake up to that every day. Also, the phones we got are very interesting and might take some getting used to (pictured next to my iPhone 6):
Finally, we went to a restaurant called Papacho’s Burgers. I ordered a Mustafa burger (shoutout to my father Mustafa Shaban) and I might have spent a little too much but the food quality there made me excited for what’s to come. Also, you have to pay for water at restaurants here?!?!
The first day was a successful one and I am excited for the rest of the trip!
