Wow, Jet Leg was a terrible experience...First time in Europe and this is what happend. Left New York around 6pm to Dublin. Plane was cool the crew was Irish so they sounded funny. Landed in Dublin around 5 am there time so about midnight NY time. Meaning i didn't sleep on the plane at all. Flew to Lisbon and arrived at 9 am local time and was pretty tired. Then had to figure out how to get to hostel which was an adventure and im so tired i didn't have to patient for anything or anyone in my way. Sorry dude that was asking for something..... probly trying to steal my stuff anyways. Found the hostel but room was not ready so had to wonder around for about an hour and then finally got my room and started to settle in when the bathroom door creeks open and a girl walks out! I forgot about co ed rooms so I was startled because i thought i screwed up and was in the wrong room! Her name was Julie and she was a very sweet young girl from Germany. She ended up being my best friend at the hostel. I managed to hammer out an hour nap before the sun and noise drove me crazy. This hostel was amazing, they had a chief from the outside come in every night and cook a supper and for 5 euro you could join in! They also had a mini bar, where a dude would set up shop beside the book shelf selling some drinks. So off course being surrounded by so many young people and being friday drinks were served. Ended up being hammered and out on the town my first night running on only an hour nap in the last 2 days. The bars were wierd, everyone basically went inside and bought a drink only to return to the alley to party! Basically exhausted by the end of the night and slept till 2 the next day... decided that i needed another day in town because i had slept in so late so i booked another night making it 3 nights in Lisbon.

I would have to say I really enjoyed the city and the night when 3 Germans, 2 Aussies, 1 Hollander and a Canadian destroyed the place.

Jot Notes:
-Jesus Statue
-14 Km bridge
-Only Canadian in Hostel
-Bought sandwich, big bag chips, 1.5 L of orange juice and 3 bananas for 3.5 euros.....!!!
