As Hogmanay revelers filtered into the 2 bedroom flat, the party soon became standing room only! Somehow I got separated from Mar and I ended up talking to a bunch of Couchsurfers from Australia, Spain, and Scotland in someone's bedroom.
Eventually, we migrated to the loo to join Tabi, Anick, Bastien, and Jotikas who were partaking in alcoholic beverages...whiskey (I think), kalimotxo (pronounced calimocho and is a Spanish concotion made from 50% red wine and 50% Coke), and a beverage called Buckfast, which is a tonic wine. I don't know what else Jotikas put in the kalimotxo because shortly after, he, Bastien, and Anick squeezed themselves into the bath tub for shits and giggles!
The loo was getting too cramped for comfort so Mar and I headed out of the flat to chill on the stairwell. After a brief moment on the stairs, we both decided to call it a night and head back to the hostel for some much needed rest...even if only for a few hours!
