Journal Entry – 7.30.1998

Well I’m leaving for home tomorrow. I’m just sitting here in my hotel room because everyone else has already left.  Laurel was here with me and we had a great time together here in Madrid.  But she left today around one and I went into Madrid and bought a USA Today went to Kentucky Fried Chicken and then went to La Reina Sofia to get some prints of some Dali paintings. 

It’s kinda lonely knowing that everyone else has already gone or is travelling in Europe somewhere.  I’m glad I’m going back though.  However I know how bad I’m going to miss this place.  I love España.  I am going to miss Toledo, all the friends I have made, Marea, Cuatro Tiempos, and the easyness of this lifestyle.  I think I will get culture shock to some degree.  I want to write more but I really need to eat, I can’t wait any longer. 

OK, I’m back.  Here I sit listening to SKA-P and I can remember partying in Marea to this song seeing Jeff headbang or passed out on the couch.  And all the other people making out, dancing, getting hammered, just having a great time.  This is what I am going to miss.  It’s 8:35 and I think I’m going to go to bed pretty early tonight.  I just want tomorrow to get here and be on my way.  It’s going to be a long day but I’ll be glad to get out of Spain since all my friends have already left.
