An inconvenient arrival to Trent

I arrived in Trento at the scheduled hour and headed towards my Couchsurfing friend's house. Since I was not familiar with the town, I decided to take a taxi, but later I regreted and thought I could have walked instead. Anyway, when I got to his house, I rang the bell and nobody answered. I felt a annoyed and maybe a little scared, so after repeated ringings I started to think of what to do.
Anyway, I walked strandedly by the streets of Trento heading towards the Basilica. I wanted to see if there was some tourist information, but I found a cheap hotel instead. I decided to book a room, since I was so tired and I was in desperate need of a shower. I refreshed, checked internet and found that my host sent me a message saying he was late and he'd be home around 6:00-7:00 PM. Well, at least he did not desert me. I replied and then looked for a bar to see the inaugural game of the World Cup. I found a cool bar very near to where I was and I could see the game there. Unfortunately the game wasn't so good, IMO.
I went back to my hotel and took a little nap, and then met with my host at the City Fountain.
At night we went to an electronic music concert that seems to be much in the fashion of the European scene. I could meet some of my host friends, we had a great time! They wanted to have dinner at a McDonalds before heading back home, but I told them I wouldn't eat in one of those in Europe for my life.
