I started my trip in Denver on Thursday at eleven in the morning. I got to Atlanta after missing the first two flights, having been flying standby, and the last flight being delayed by five hours, convinced most passengers to transfer flights and allowed me to get into Atlanta. The plane left at 20:00, and arrived around 3:15 in the morning. As soon as I landed I looked ...
... s, cheeses, fresh seafood. Lots of Tapas. Lots of delicacies that I am unable to identify, however, this time, I want to try it all. A few of us stopped in front of the oysters. Huge! Janet, Graham and I shared 6 fresh oysters with lemon between us. Best thing I've eaten on this trip. (Mmm, um hang on, Belgian chocs also come to mind) Early dinner, Suckling pig for me. Athena has the paella. We are treated with a spanish 4 piece band ...

We returned home for dinner, got ready, and went out to a bar called La Realidad. I didn't think I would go to the club afterward, but... yeah. I ended up going and dancing the night away again. I left earlier though-- around 3am-- because we had plans for the next morning and I didn't want to be completely dead. So I slept when I got home.
