nada, nada, nada

So... I've got nothin'!

The Indian place we went to Thursday night, Restaurant Majestic, was just descent and the best part about it was probably the ambiance. I could definitely tell a Latin American spin on authentic cuisine. I've gotten spoiled from the scrumptious little hole in the wall places that my best friend takes me to in the city I guess! Unfortunately my camera ran out of batteries immediately at the beginning of the meal so I have no pictures to share, I'm so sorry :(. To start we ordered Samosas, deep fried pastry triangles with meat and vegetables. I'd give them a five out of ten. Mine was yummy but it reminded me more of an empanada than anything else. We then split a large order of Naan and Rice for the table and had our own little separate dishes, I got the Vegetable Kashmiri since I wasn't too hungry and felt like some spice. This was good but not nearly as hot as I think it should of been. I also sampled other dishes that were just, okay. Oh well, lol, I felt like such a snob because everyone else was thrilled.

Alright, so I had gotten a bit too excited for a mediocre restaurant but it was nice to go out to eat for a change and with my favorite people. Plus, I had Friday and Saturday to look forward to. Earlier in the day my program had a Empanadas cooking class and then I was supposed to go with a few of my friends to Viña del Mar y Valparaiso. The cities are super close so we would have been spending time in both. So, Friday night was a birthday party at a club and Saturday, today, we were planning on going to a beach asado. Yet I'm sitting at home writing this post.

I woke up early yesterday morning with one of the most intense stomach pains ever. I feel like I'm constantly complaining about mi aguata, it's become very sensitive to everything apparently, but this was like nothing I had ever felt before. I had gotten food poisoning from the Indian food that I didn't even enjoy that much ¡Qué pena! I spent most of my day between my bed and the little girl's room and hardly ate a thing. I've never been so incredibly uncomfortable. I even took the medicine that I had from the gastrointestinal infection but it hardly helped. Nonetheless I never made it out of the house, let alone to the coast... and my friend, who I was supposed to share a hostel room with, is pissed at me. Seriously, she sent me a text message that started off, "thanks for screwing me over..." and got worse from there.
What?! I didn't reply yesterday because I didn't have the energy but even now that I'm feeling half-way better I still don't know what to say. I'm still shocked that she reacted so selfishly and felt the need to message me in such a mean tone. Obviously I would've much rather gone and obviously I didn't get sick on purpose; I was just as disappointed. Ugh, I hate the way girls are! So, anyway, yeah, like I said, I've got nothin' for you all and again, I apologize. No pictures, nor foodie stories, not even any cool sights. I figure I'd use this unexpected free day to get in some research for on my organic agriculture project. And in the mean time, I may or may not eat anything interesting, (although I'm not in pain, I still don't have much of an appetite,) but I'll let you know. Take care bloggies, I hope you're enjoying your weekend more than I am!
