Yesterday, after being told by three banks "no exchange traveler checks"... I got totally lost, on the wrong bus, turned around, got off the bus... stood on the street, and guess what? Yep, I cried. I just can't help it. It's like, I swallow and say, "Cole, don't cry, it's okay, you'll find your way," but then they come, tears rolling down my cheeks. I had my moment.....and finally decided to ship up, instead of shipping out (3rd grade teacher taught me this!)
Found the right bus and got to the train station, where after talking to three different people, finally got the correct tickets. Note to anyone traveling to Europe: BUY YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE AND HAVE
THEM MAILED TO YOU IN THE STATES!! I was going to do this, and got online and tried to do it, but it was two days before I left to Europe and there wasn't time for them to be mailed to me.
I went to the Pablo Picasso Museaum after my train station event, and, to be honest, was not impressed. Was Pablo on acid most of his life? Google these: Picasso, Skull, sea urchans, lamp on table.
This is just random. I mean, sea urchans, a skull and a lamp all on one table? Do I see any common factors here? Nope... do I see any relation to these objects? um.. nope. Do I see a point to this piece of art? again.. no!
Lots of paintings of woman laying down "reclining" as he put it, naked... with another naked woman playing a flute.
My favorite, however was Father and Child. It made sense to me... nice to the eye... good coloring, and gave me a nice family feeling.
I wanted to share some random pictures of my life..... and here they are:
This is where I sleep!
Pee, shower, etc...
Living room. I never really hang out here, but thought you might like to see what their house looks like!
These little boats with fires on top (stove like fires) are all over the beach close to restaraunts. They are basically cooking fish they just caught. Mostly sardines or other very small fish. I believe they sell them to the people on the beach, or maybe even to the restaraunts. It's a way of cooking them that makes them so tasty! Pretty cool though huh?! I have yet to eat out a restaraunt. I know, I know, but when you get FREE dinner every night from your momma, you tend to eat at home. Plus the US dollar sucks right now to the EURO.
A thing of nail polish for example is like $15. Um, yeah no. (I use nail polish as an example cause I wanted to paint my toe nails but decided not after the price!)
