The place we got our new clothes
So we slept in a little bit today and we decided that our first order of business after food would be clothes!! I know so we have only been gone just over a month but I think for being first time travellers we did really well with packing light. We didn't bring that much and we were just sick and tired of our same shirts. Last night when we were out walking around we saw some cool stores that we thought would be worth checking out for some new stuff. We went to a store called the New Yorker that was pretty sweet. It had some awesome clothes that were all pretty trendy and tons of accesories and stuff. I ended up buying 4 shirts and that made me really happy. After that we called home and then we went searching for a post office. Well we finally found this massive one that had a whole bunch of different sections.
Friends from the pub crawl!
We got a number for what we thought was the right line we were supposed to be in. We ended up waiting like an hour before we got to talk to the guy. He gave us some boxes and tape etc to put our packages together. We were just mailing home a whole bunch of our post cards that we bought and some of our souveniers and all the tickets etc that we kept. It's crazy how much those things actually weigh when you have them in a huge pile. I also mailed home a couple shirts because I had just bought new ones! It didn't even cost that much money to mail all that stuff. I think mine was about 8lbs and it only cost $28 dollars cdn!! On our way back to the hostel we stopped at the Alberts superstore and bought some food and booze. We bought Cookie crisp cereal and some Heineken and Stella. It was soo cheap too!! We got 1/2 L of beer and they were only 90 cents cdn! When we get back to the hostel as were going to the common area guess who we pass?? Our trip twins!! Jesse, Jeff, Jayson, and Todd just arrived today to the same hostel as us. How crazy eh? Anyways so we talked with them for a while and then we decided to go on a pub crawl! It met in the big square and it was really fun. I don't really remember how many bars we went to but it was a few. We met some awesome people and just partied etc. The last place we went to was a night club and that was fun and then after we went back to the hostel to sleep yay.
