(23:10:39) [me]: no

(23:10:54) [me]: but at the bazaar right next to the cards at one place they had a big pile of women's underwear

(23:11:04) [me]: probably including thongs; I didn't check

(23:11:10) Jóhann: im glad you didnt check

(23:11:42) [me]: why?

...

(23:13:44) Jóhann: because thats just perfectly normal for a guy who looks straight with red hair to go through a pile of women's underwear in a middle of an unorderly marketplace in Kyrgryzstan...nothing strange about that

(23:35:55) Sarah: I only have one bag here and I am NOT sharing them.

(23:36:35) Sarah: I'll share some of my weird soup with you?

(23:36:40) [me]: ROFL, no thanks

(23:37:07) Sarah: Good, because you'd probably vomit and hate me for the rest of your life.

(23:37:21) [me]: is it that bad?

(23:37:55) Sarah: It would be fine if it were just vegetable soup, but it's like they tried to add chicken and dumplings.....but it's VEGETABLE soup.

(23:40:17) [me]: what's the soup call itself?

(23:40:45) Sarah: It says that it's chicken and dumplings. I got maybe 3 pieces of bite sized chicken?
