wow, i walked into an internet cafe near the Grand Via with my friends Mark n Angie, i realized, this is the exact same 1 i was in b4 with Cary when we travelled thru Spain the first time.
this is the first time we´ve really had any rest from our Speed Travelling. it´s quite nice, tho not as warm as expected just yet.
we did manage to do a lot of stuff upon arrival in Madrid. saw a Bull fight for the very first time in my life. i don´t really care for its unfairness to the bull, but at least i saw it with my own eyes b4 disagreeing with wht goes on ther. o well.
it´s been really expensive travelling in europe. but nothing comapred to UK (london), wow.
amsterdam, rode bycicles, fell twice. quite embarassing. tried the coffeeshop specials and special mushrms, awesome experience.
saw sex show w-friends. help him take foto w-the prostitute in red light district. she was really friendly.
paris is best so far. bordeaux for first time, wine tasting n driving around countryside, so fun.
i drove, cuz no one else can drive stick shift. important.
best food hands down, france.
hardly go wrong anywhere, except for the food court in the Lourvre, crappy food ther! don´t even bother!
yesterday, wnt to oldest medival town in spain, Toledo. was beautiful, but after a while we lost interest as usual. but fun walking thru town anyhow.
ok, gotta run, wil try posting some fotos somehow soon.
barcelona in a day or so.
until then, we´r sort of bored here... taking our break.

time to take off!

it's 5.30 am. i didn't sleep at all, was going to try when my alarm wnt off, good one. the sky is lightening up. i've packed and repacked my luggage several times, conflicted about what to bring n what not to bring along for this trip. since i'll b going from spring-like weather into summer heat. and then it's like 45 days of travelling in europe n then nyc. i just want to bring EVERYTHING! o well, i've tried, now ther's no more time to take out or add things. i'm gonna just keep it as is. i just don't like the weight.
time to get ready.
hope we don't hit traffic.
gotta pick up other frnds on the way to long beach airport (thank goodness it's not LAX)

just a bit worried about how fast we'r passing thru ea/place. i may just break away from group if need b.
gonna need a vacation from this trip in the end.

i will try to blog from my trip.
birds r chirping.

if anyone has suggestions for wher to go eat in london, paris, belgium, n any of the destinations we'r going thru, pls lemme kno. esp nice must-eat restaurants or places or hangouts or clubs or bars, etc.

ciao
