Munich was such a great city! As mentioned before, I had plans to meet up with some Canadian girls that I met earlier in the day on the Munich tour. We had such a blast. A couple of other American girls from L.A. joined up with us and we had a ton of fun going from place to place. I think we went all over the city! On our way home, we saw a Canadian street performer with a Canadian flag on his guitar. He was nice and spoke a bunch about his family in AB. He played us a bunch of Neil Young and CCR songs and everyone was singing along. Good times.
I said goodbye to my new friends and headed up the stairs out of the main train station and to my hostel. By this time (after such a hot day) a crazy electrical and rain storm was starting up. I litteraly ran down the street towards my hostel. IT was downporing SO MUCH! By the time I got to my hostel (and it only took about 2 minutes) I was drenched from head to toe and laughing with the other people who were doing the same. It was great!
Early this a.m. I caught a plane to Madrid. Madrid is a cool city. It is very easy to get around with the Metro. In my hostel room is a couple of really nice Calgarian teachers. I ended up visiting with them for awhile. Although my original plan was just to get some sleep, I couldn´t! We all went to a Flamenco dancing show (so awesome!) and then out for some supper (sangria and tapas). It is so funny here. In Amsterdam, all the supper place closed down by 9 pm. Here, they all just start opening up around that time.
Tomorrow, I am off to Morocco! Looking forward to coming back to Madrid again!
