8:13 AM...or is it 7:13???

Yes the wonderful Daylight Savings Time is upon me...I just wish I would have known last night when I set my alarm for 7:00 this morning.....

I am going hiking in the mountains with Amics de Planques, a NGOD (Non Governmental Organization for Development) http://www.amicsdepalanques.org/index_en.html Me and 2 of my roommates were to be picked up at 8:30 in a park about a 15 minute walk from our house. I was up, drinking my coffe and relaxing when Robert and Mesfin crawled from their rooms. Robert and I were ready at 8:10 and were waiting on Mesfin when he walked into the kitchen and started getting the coffee pot ready. I said, Hey you don't have time for coffee, we have to leave in 2 minutes. This caused a flurry of confusion as his mobile said it was only 7:15. I looked at the kitchen clock slowly ticking away and then I looked towards Robert. His watch said 8:15 so Mesfin started frantically getting ready. I paced nervously as I HATE being late for anything.

I then looked at my mobile and it said 7:18...I then said, "Ummm is it daylight saving time"? We then rushed to my computer and I started it up and lo and behold, it is! There are so many things I forget about since I don't understand the radio or TV here...

So here I sit on the computer with an hour to kill. Mesfin is making his coffee and Robert went back to bed...
