... fourth weekend! I got burned pretty badly on every part of my body, and I'm just now beginning to peel all that skin away, but it was so worth it. We only have one more weekend here before we all go our separate ways, so I'm really thankful that I got to have a great one with my friends. It's so crazy to think that two weeks from now, I won't even be here anymore! I'm dreading leaving the island, but I also can't wait to see my girlfriend and family again.

... since I was at the beach, but it was so cool! My favorite part was the graffiti. In most European countries, graffiti tagging is not illegal as it is in the U.S., and my theory is that the Spanish artists are more likely to be respectful of local establishments here because they don't have a law to rebel against as American artists do.
