Ya baby, slept in to 9:30! La sluggo.
Made a couple of Starbucks Via coffees and enjoyed it on the rooftop patio before going down and getting a substantial breakfast of Churros. I am really looking forward to my bacon and eggs, and poodle staring on my first morning back.
As the coffee and sugar were kicking in I spent a couple of hours catching up on emails and getting the mind back into work mode. Things are going to be pretty busy when I get back and need to hit the ground running.
I then finished getting the bike disassembled, taped, zip tied and into the box. Getting faster and less stressed about it. Now I just need some packing tape to finish the job, plus a wine opener.
Yesterday I bought the best bottle of red they had at the supermarket, ok it was 9e but still the best they had. When I got back to the hotel and checked the wine openers more closely I noticed they were both broken. When I went to the stores close to the hotel the good ones where 9e, I can’t spend as much as the wine on the opener, right?
So off sightseeing I went, first the Church, Wtf 14e, sorry not doing that. Picture in my head, gold, Jesus on a cross, organ, bla bla. Now off to the castle, 2.5e, more to my liking. Walk around and get some good shots of the city from the top of the hill.
It was a long ways and I just flew up but at the top I was sweating like crazy. I normally sweat too much and then the humidy… no wonder people stare at me. Anyway the clouds were coming in and rain starting so that just said one thing, beer and food.
I headed as far north as I felt necessary to get away from the tourist restaurants and buskers etc. Finally after twenty minutes people were giving me that “are you lost look” and I knew it was safe to order.
All of a sudden two people came out of a little place carrying a massive bin of Paella. I wanted a picture so bad but could not get it fast enough. They did not sell small dishes, dam! But found a reasonable place and settled in.
Then around the corner was China Hippie, their version of the dollar store. I got my tape for the bike and a nice wine opener for 1.75, score. I will donate this to the hotel to replace the ones that are broken.
Then back for a nap and some more planning. At 7 went out for more food and a walk by the ocean. All 3 Cruze liners had left and it was quieter. Pretty small port really.
Not sure what I am going to do tomorrow, this relaxing is killing me.
Anyhow, thanks for reading, I hope you have enjoyed another virtual trip, my ups and downs, and everything else in between.
Till the next adventure….
