I decided to try a little pre-breakfast experiment: one packet hazelnut instant coffee (sadly, it doesn't include creamer - I didn't realize that when I ordered it online to bring with me to quarantine), one packet "3in1" instant coffee (with creamer and sugar) provided by the hotel, and two large squares of extra dark chocolate, all stirred together in hot water in my mug showing my awesome niece and nephews.
Verdict: the niece and nephews are still pretty awesome, but the coffee mixture, not so much. The dark chocolate is a little too extra (bitter). I'll stick with the two types of coffee from now on. Oh well, it was worth a try!
I heard some exciting news today. I found out that I get to go out on my field trip tomorrow! I wasn't expecting it till day 13 or 14 of my quarantine, but my quarantine officer called and said the taxi will come and pick us up at 10:00 tomorrow morning. Yes, you heard me right: I said US! That's right, Floyd and I will get to ride in the taxi TOGETHER! It will take us to a local hospital, where a doctor will administer PCR tests as one final check for COVID. Then the same quarantine taxi will take us back to the hotel for the rest of our stay (which has not been shortened, unfortunately, just because our field trip got moved up - Floyd asked!). I'm so excited, both to leave my quarantine tomorrow and to see my husband face to face! Maybe we can even (gasp!) hold hands in the taxi!
Here are today's meals.
Now I'm watching Taiwan play China in men's badminton for the gold! See you tomorrow! GO, TAIWAN!!!
