Two Days

illustration: a place where I did my best impersonation
of a person who isn't a complete stress case.

Two (2): apparently the maximum number of work-days I can take off from the archives without feeling guilty. On this, my friend's last visit day, I sent her off to explore a local attraction with instructions to meet up after lunch, so I could get some archive time.

Nevertheless, I did have a good time. But true relaxation seems to be beyond me.

I guess I'm going to be the contradictory voice in your comments and say that I think it makes sense right now that you're more focused on the archives than the full-on relaxation. I suspect it will be easier to relax towards the end of your trip, when you've got more to take home with you. I tend to feel more ramped up at the beginning because I've waited so long to get there. Since you do have company, you won't be going into the full immersion that you would otherwise, but carving out a bit of time here and there seems reasonable to me. Enjoy it all, if at all possible?!
