Rain Rain go Away.

I am in a funk.  It has been raining since Saturday and I can't seem to bring myself to go running or do anything for that matter.  I've spent the past few days catching up on American TV (thank you project free tv!) I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I am very much looking forward to going home on Monday.

Last Saturday my friend Jule (who(m?)I met in San Sebastian in September) came to visit me from her school in France.  We enjoyed a nice dinner near La Rambla and then walked along and checked out some of the Guadi houses and Sagrada Familia before heading back to Jule's hostel and enjoying some wine and socializing with other travelers.

Eventually a handful of us made our way to the bars. It was fun going out, but dear lord were the drinks over priced.  Rather than paying in the bar,  my new friend Peter and I walked outside to buy a 1e beer from a man on the street (seems super shady but it's actually quite normal) Unfortunately our friends had relocated while we were outside and we had a hard time finding them, once I heard that Jule was back at the hostel (she had pulled an irish goodbye) I myself went home and slept.  Jule and I had some plans to go on the cable car but the weather was shit.  Instead we spent most of the day sitting at Starbucks just chatting.  Which was perfect, it's nice to know that I've made a real friend while traveling and I look forward to visiting with her again.
not our best picture, but atleast we got one!
