On Friday night we decided to go on a pub crawl. It started at 1am at the bar in Cats hostel. From there we went to two other bars/dance clubs that I don't remember the names of and ended at a Salsa club. I didn't stay too long at the salsa club because NO ONE knew how to salsa dance, not even the two Mexican guys who went on the crawl. Oh well. It was really fun. My friend Kayla and I had a good time dedicating our dance moves to MJ when they played Billie Jean.
Saturday I thought we would be in museums all day, but it turned out they weren't free until 6pm, so we spent the day in El Parque de Buen Retirio (park of good rest). It was a beautiful park, but I was not prepared for a day outdoors. I got very badly sun burnt on my back and you can clearly see a hand print and a distinct border of where I put sunscreen and where I didn't. Oh well, it's the first time I've gotten burnt on the trip and it was bound to happen eventually.
At 6pm we went to el Museo del Prado and saw some art by Goya and Rafeal and el Greco, It was pretty interesting, but a lot of it looked the same...depictions of the last supper, cruxificion, Mother Mary etc. Later we went to a vegetarian restaurant and it was the worst food I've ever had. I had this goat cheese roll with caramelized onions and it was a bad choice. There was too much of the cheese; it had a very strong flavor. After that we went to a dance club called Sol y Sombra and danced the night away. They played YMCA so we all got up on this stage and did the dance. It was pretty fun.
On Sunday we went to the open air market in the morning and then headed back to Toledo. Now I am procrastinating and avoiding finishing my first paper :)
