The day we arrived in England was the first sunny day in 2 months; I got a sunburn visiting London who can say that! The English were out in force and it was hilarious, they are so pasty white and they were all out in the parks etc getting some sun. They looked like Barber polls nothing but red and white stripes its was really funny to see these dark dwellers getting sun burnt.
The Cambridge beer fest had pork pie and bacon beer, I feel like I’m on a tour of pork, also we bought a bag of ham flavored potato chips here in Spain, what’s next bacon ice cream?Very
Funny note about our entry to the country, we were told we had to go to the local police station to register or we could be considered illegal, so Sun we went down to the Moron Station but they don’t do it on Sunday so we went back yesterday (Mon) at 2 PM and guess what we were told to come back at 4 or 5. My first thought was just to become an illegal alien in Spain I figured we get a free ride home, but in the end the nice Policeman returned looking very fresh after his nap at 4 PM(think goodness he came back early) Heres the deal the Spanish don’t do anything until 12 PM and then they break from 1-5 Pm and then work until 7ish, hello I want to be mad and hate this culture but its hard to hate Genius! All we have to do is stop amassing debt policing the world and start spending to work 4 late hours a day!
Tomorrow a trip to the Alhambra(Granada) which was one of my
goals this trip, pics tomorrow
Today we slept in and are going to the Granada Cathedral and then an early lunch(5 or 6 PM). So about lunch, if you go out at noon you will only be able to eat at the bars and have like a small sandwich. Here is the funniest thing, you can’t get Police help at noon because everyone of these slacker A(*&^holes are at the bars drinking beer, seriously everyone is drinking at noon and eating small sandwiches, by Spanish standards this is breakfast! Then they take a break until 5 PM, like I said your first emotion is hate but if you think about it who really has it right?
Spanish Model Day:
Wake up at 11 AM
Have beers at bar 12PM-2ish
Go to work at 5PM
Leave work at 7ish and go to dinner at 9PM
It is now 1 PM and I want lunch but that is 4 hours away and the best I can do is try to say Ba Sandwicho to the confused bartender. Oh well I will send updates tomorrow.
