... made our way out to the packed dance floor. We all laughed in our wild success of the night, and danced and danced and danced.
We made it out to the beach where Kelly decided she needed to run into the Mediterranean, so I stayed on the shore with the other two Canadians and held her clothes while she excitedly pranced in the water. Everyone needs a drunken Mediterranean night swim.
