The next day we headed to the beach which was actuqlly really nice; good waves and niceish sand. Got busted sitting on the deckchairs which we thought were free::: asked to pay 5 euros each: we stalled for a while then made a break for it when the guy wasnt looking:
Toured the Gothic district in the afternoon __ absolutely beautiful buildings and history
The next day we returned to the beach and got massages while lying in the sun __ heaven!! ate fresh fruit from the markets all day then had to say farewell to tara who flew out to england: spent the rest of my time lying in the gorgeous parks reading and eating iceblocks.
Sadly had to say goodbye to spain and head to France that night: But before I leave spain on this blog; will make a quick note of a few things Ive noticed here:
° everyone has some kind of crazy piercing
°its so hot but the heat is really dry, not humid so u can cope
° meat! its everywhere! if i eat another jamon (ham) sandwich im going to die
° music is everywhere too:::every street corner; every chapel; every house: you can hear the strains of guitar; piano; anything as long as it has a melody. I love it:
° Beer is soooo cheap. 1 pint for 80 cents; oh yeah!
° Everyone is so lovely; havent encountered any rude spanish people so far; feel really welcome in this country
Farewell to spain: I know Ill be back; hopefully with a greater grasp on the language. I think ill have to live here for a little while one day: Until then; au revoir and onto France!
