Last night, I ended up meeting Macy and Jessica downtown and then walking to our intercambio at a bar called The Lounge. I talked to three guys, Barto, Miguel, and Clemente (who was really, really good-looking...) for what I thought was like, an hour, and turned out to be 3 1/2. It was great though, because the entire time I was talking in Spanish. I'm getting better!!! I caught a cab home, and went to sleep around 2:45
This morning is one for the books. I woke up at 8:00, showered, ate a leisurely breakfast, and got myself ready INCLUDING make-up. All in time to leave before 9:10 and get to school promptly. We rode our bikes today and I almost died when a car that should've been paying attention to their red light when I had the green bike light pulled in front of me. I had to swerve, and I dinged my bell at him with all the ire I could muster. Crazy Spanish driver.
Today was the longest day of school in the history of the world, and I don't even know why. We had Culture and Literatura. They seemed to drag on FOREVER. When it was 1:15, finally, Lindsey and I rode our bikes home. For lunch we had paella with vegetables, mushrooms, bread, and strawberries. We also had a thick olive oil sauce for the paella. I don't even have the words to tell you how good it was. We cleansed our palates with a nice cup of English tea. Mmm.
After, I came up and siesta'ed for a little while. I also worked on some homework, postcards, and studied a little. I skyped with Mary Evelyn, for the first time in over a week, and it was so good! That was definitely the longest we'd gone without talking.
Around 6:00, I got ready for the night... MTV Winter: Valencia!!! I met up with Macy, Jessica, Lukas, David, Markos, Samu, Cristina, Jazmín, and new friends: Jacobo, Johnny, Anne, Felipe, and Marubel. Then we all headed to La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (CAC) for the concert. First was a group called Starsailor, followed by Mando Diao, and finally Franz Ferdinand. It was SUCH a fun concert! It was actually held in what is usually a long, shallow pool next to one of the huge buildings, but that had been drained for the event. There were over 60,000 people there, it smelled strongly of hash, and I'd never been surrounded by so many Spanish people in my life. But I enjoyed it, nonetheless! Thoroughly!
When the concert was over, around 12:30, I met up with Melanie and walked home. For some reason, I've been so tired today (could it be my lack of sleep ;) so I can't wait to get some quality shut-eye.
