On Saturday I went to the boat race I knew that it was suppose to rain, I looked at Liere's collection of umbrellas but decided against borrowing one. I even walked into a store that was selling those and ponchos but didn't purchase any anti-wet supplies. These would be two decisions that I would regret about an hour later. I paid my 3.50 euro and climbed to the top of the aquarium. The view was pretty good for the race, but I had time to kill, and no allegiance to any team- so I wandered further up the hill. Up there I found where everyone in my age bracket was enjoying a some beer and tapas. I hung around just long enough for the clouds to open up and I got soaked. It was quite windy there, so the rain was coming in every direction. Everyone scrambled under umbrellad or trees. Not having an umbrealla I too ran into the shrubs in hopes of some relief. There wasn't much but I saw one of the heats row by before giving up and walking back to the apartment.
