What a night, and what a morning. We partied pretty hard until the morning hours on Sunday. And then we had to go back to our hotel. It looked much worse in bright daylight than it did the night before. Three tiny beds, mosquitos all over the place. A horrible squatting toilet to share with the rest of the floor and the shower? I didn’t even enter. I certainly didn’t feel like alcohol at that point. My body just wanted to sleep. But you gotta do what you gotta do. So I dragged myself to the next corner shop and checked for the least painful drink in that moment. And I found a “shot” of beer. Strong though. Efes Xtra strong.
I didn’t take too many notes on this one, but I remember that it was disgusting (not just from this occasion but also from the time I had it before). It smelled sweetish gummy almost ale like and was pretty fizzy. The taste was similar, kind of like bad bubble gum with a distinct alcohol and metal flavor. The alcohol content was 9%, a bit more potent than the tall boy can of the Efes Xtra strong (7.4%). At least the can was only 237ml (who thought of this unit??). I could have done without a drink of the day this Sunday but this one was particularly bad.
