i dont have much time for internet when i was in spain, so i left it all to him - perdona mi amigo. i mean as what jc said - i promoted the meet up and tirso organized it.
he asked how many people i can bring and i said 12 people that i know are coming on madrid on the 11th. he asked me what do we want to do in madrid? he had a couple of suggestions for me. i told him, something fun, something we should remember, something unorthodox but something that we shouldnt spend much money - i gave him a VERY TOUGH ASSIGNMENT ON THAT!!! hahahahahahaha again perdona mi, mi amigo.
so the day of the meet up came! i was already with a troup of travbuddies! hahahahahha my friends! WE ALL STAYED AT THE POP HOSTEL in madrid! i mean ALL OF US! hahahahaha the people inside the hostel were flaberrgasted that we all knew each other :D
the meeting point was at 3 pm at the estatua del oso, puerta del sol! that bear statue was fucking difficult to find - luckily i found it earlier together with ben and estephanie because we got lost while exploring madrid in the afternoon :D hahahahhahahahaha.
now tirso arranged something special for us - in the evening - we are invited to a pool party in a big house with a big swimming pool in the middle of madrid! bloody hell! (sorry ron, i borrowed your words) thats amazing.
the first part of meeting tirso - was he toured us around madrid and we went bar hopping in the afternoon! the guys loved it and i love it because were going through small narrow streets that no tourist would ever go to! i saw madrid not as a tourist - but someone who also lives there - beautiful and gorgeous city!
then after that we went back to the hostel to refresh and bring some things - as we are gonna meet again at 8 pm for the pool party again at the damn bear statue! hahahahahaha
when we were all there gathered at puerta del sol waiting for juan carlos- one guy approached us and he was so shy - it was cam he was shy when he talked to us. then suddenly all of us got hungry! i think from walking, we left cam and dave at the bear statue then we all rushed to kfc! hahaha but the other went to mcdonalds and subway, then came back rushing inside kcf and ate their stuff their! hahah what a fucking third world! hahaha.
then jc called me and said he's already at the meeting point, so we went there and found him together with dave and cam.
now juan carlos (stares at him like his mother) hahaha was late! well not exactly late but he was the last to come! when we saw each other he carried me and hugged me like a toy! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr hahahahahahaha.
then the girls just figured that we dont have much booze to bring, so they went looking for a liquor store - lori, hannah and ben. but after waiting for an hour, they were still not there, so the rest of us decided to find a bar where we can sit and have, well SOME DRINK. but after an hour waiting in the bar, they still werent to be found, i wouldnt want to call them, because my phone bill already skyrocketed.
at the bar, cam was still shy, but finally after a couple rounds of sangria in a bar he was out of his shell! hahahhaha thank you very much cam for treating us all with 3-4 glasses of sangria, some chorizos, hamon y queso! youre one of the best!
then ben called me and i asked jeff to pick them up, because i dont know madrid, then when they were there, lori and hannah was drunk hahaha, now were all set to go to the pool party!
we went to the subway and headed to republica argentina station, where the mansion for the pool is located.
inside the mansion - there was a big balloon castle where you can jump around and have fun! the pool was small but it was draped with flower petals and it was chilly!
tirso invited me to meet the host of the party - but i was too shy! i mean all the people WERE ACTUALLY DRESSED UP while us - i mean me - i look like i came from the chabola (hahahahahahahaha) i even had 4 bandages on my toes because i had fucking blisters on them! hahahahaha
the party was really nice - nice techno, pop and house music - good mood - classy and very elite (that really made me feel uncomfortable) but dont mind me tirso i had fun! hahahahaha its just that i am thinking of the hours coz i have a flight early in the morning back to düsseldorf.
im sorry too that i didnt get to meet and say hi to christina and her friend jroz, maybe next time?
so me, hanie, dave and robbo (he was so tired) to go back to the hostel and sleep for a while before our flight.
tirso, muchas gracias for the great organisation and invitation. the party and the tour was amazing, an experience in madrid i will never forget! hasta luego mi amigo mio!
kat! thanks so much for coming i was touched that you said youre coming to madrid because of me! i had the opportunity to talk to you more than in düsseldorf! youre such a gem! im glad i saw you again!
dave you fool! hahaahaha i hope you got the right airport to barcelona! was nice spending my time with you as i didnt get the chance to talk to you also in düsseldorf.
jeff - they should give you an award! hahah youve been to europe how many times ONLY THIS YEAR?!! wtf?!
