Another hot day

It was again very hot here, almost 100 deg F. but since it´s humid it feels a lot hotter. I walk around just sweating.
Today I woke late again. It really wasn´t that late since I was up until almost 3am last night and a full 8 hours sleep would put me awake at 11a which was when I woke. It felt later though because everyone in my room was gone or leaving when I finally rolled out of bed.
I first went to KFC, just to see what it was like since I´ll have all month to eat more traditional food. It wasn´t bad but out of the 11 herbs and spices I think they forgot 5 and they didn´t have any tabasco sauce to go with it. It was a bit tough ordering because the menus were in catalan, not castillian spanish, so even though I do well in spanish I was unable to understand much of what was written.
From KFC I went to the beach. It was nice...but again really hot. The water was wonderful. Some of the females were topless too so that was a plus. I think I almost burned my feet on the sand. I had to stop every few feet to stand on my towel to cool them down before I moved on.
From there I went to the zoo. The zoo here is great. See my review so I don´t have to type everything twice.
When I left the zoo it was abotu 5:30pm so I just strolled around the park a bit and then returned to the hostel where I bumped into the canadians. After I showered I met them for tapas and sangria. The sangria was sweet, I´m not a big fan of it this way. I like the way I saw it on television and how one of the canadians described it. Wine, fruit, some brandy, and that´s it. I´m sure that sangria is like most drinks where there are a ton of recipies. Eitherway I think they put suger or a suger syrup in it and I didn´t like that much.
We stayed there for 3 or 4 hours just talking after dinner. It was really nice. The topic went to politics a bit and I found that we were generally of similar opinions of the issues, it was the solution to the issues where we differed. It was refreshing to hear an outsider´s point of view.
I´ve got one more day here and then on Monday I´ll be going to Valencia. I´m excited about this. Tomorrow I´ll probably check out a big park here and then also go to a few musuems then call it a day.
