Killing time in the Peace Corps is an art form. One can certainly sequester themselves in their apartment and watch re-runs of 30 Rock for hours on end. Lord knows I have done it.
Or, one can spend several hours performing mindless tasks, such as pouring salt on the carpet and then sweeping it up with a short handled broom. Been there too.
Or, one can mix a really big batch of sangria [link], submerge the entire metal pot into an ice cold stream, and grill up some hot dogs on a Sunday afternoon.
