i started off this morning super duper early to partake in the town’s “la diana” tradition. what it entails is walking through the town & visiting la reinas. each stop has some food like morcilla, chocolate.
basically you are hanging out with the crew who hasn’t gone to sleep AT ALL & have been drinking for like 24 hours. whew.
god, to be young again.
at first i was a little bummed out because it wasn’t totally what i was expecting. i felt kinda old & i wasn’t partying like everyone. it was just my dad & i. watching him made me realize, “who gives a shit about fitting in?”, live by your own rules. also, i got to pass the house that he was born in which made up for the early wake up call.
a lot of this vacation has been eating, siesta, drinking. it’s pretty amazing.
benji has been such a trip. he entertains us so much. bubbles, repeating spanish words & laughing so hard. we all feel like kids again.
we also had lunch with my dad’s friends. wow, do they know how to make a spread or what? this was before the lunch entree. nuts.
at night my dad watched benji while jimmy & i went out. my cousin’s own a pretty fun bar & they have free wifi. holllerrr ;)
ps: i am behind a couple of days & may have limited access to keeping up with the daily posts! we leave tomorrow for pamplona, wednesday logrono & thursday in barcelona. see ya then, friends!
