Journal Entry – 3.8.1998

Ok it’s Sunday night and I just got back from my travels this weekend.  I did pretty good on my three midterms last Thursday.  I took two in a row in the morning and practically went brain dead. 

But anyway, this weekend I went to Madrid on Friday and got there about two.  First we went shopping and I bought my first Spanish CD.  It’s called SKA-P.  It has a lot of good songs on it they play in the bars a lot.  Then I bought a new bag to travel with cause I have no idea what happened to my red Wilson one.  I also finally bought a Spanish/English dictionary. 

We met Alejandro and John and his friend under the clock at Sol.  Then Kate and I went to see Titanic.  It’s so much easier to understand the movie when you’ve already seen it twice in English.  After that we met up with Alejandro and John again and went to another part of the city to meet up with some girls John had met before.  We went to some apartment and chilled there for a while.  The only thing worth talking about was this Costa Rican girl.  She was pretty rich cause she was talking about how she had a house here in Spain and she goes to an Ivy league school and about her beach house. She was pretty damn good looking too.  But I hate it when people talk about how much shit they have. 

So we left them and went back to Sol and all chilled at an Irish pub.  It was so huge.  We got pretty hammered.  But I was up the next day and Kate and I went to Salamanca.  We were not able to find a hostel or hotel for ever cause they were all full.  But we finally found one and I had to pay 100 dollars for the night.  Not good!  It was a beautiful room though.  Kate and I went out that night and ran into Eric and Jenny.  From there we went to some bars and then to a discoteca called El Submarino.  It was an old submarine inside.  I didn’t have that much fun.  Today we walked around the open market and took a lot of pictures.  I didn’t get to see a lot of stuff and am kinda disappointed but I’m sure I’ll make it back there.  It is a college town and there are a lot of English speaking students.
