I left the next day for Barcelona, Spain....which was going to be a LONG drive in major HEAT! Along the way I found a nice lake that was an ocean inlet with tons of windsurfers and kite borders. I spent awhile driving around the lake and then went to where they were all camped. I met an older couple from England that had retired and bought a RV and was there relaxing and windsurfing but he had crashed and broke his rib that day. I had a wonderful evening chatting with everyone. I drove into the small town that is by the lake and had a beer and walked around. There were only like 10 bars-restaurants open so it was a very ĻlocalīsĻ place. It was so windy that night it snapped a tent pole so I just laid there all night with the tent collapsed since it was too windy and late to do anything about it
I arrived in Barcelona and did the typical driving around a very very congested city looking for one of the hostels. All the travel books are guided for people taking the trains so it is difficult finding directions in all these huge cities where I donīt speak the language. I found a place and the grabbed a wonderful meal and checked my email. The other fraternity brother we met in Nice had emailed and said he was going out to the Black Sheep that night in case I arrived that evening. I walked around downtown for a while and then met up with him and buddy. We had a wonderful evening.
Iīm going to spend today seeing Barcelona and then going to spend a few days making my way to Pampalona for running of the bulls by the 4 or 5th. Iīll update it after the bulls!!
SEND ME SOME UPDATES OR POST SOMETHING ON THE MESSAGE BOARD, IT IS NICE TO HEAR FROM EVERYONE!!
