Spent some more time exploring the roman Gothic section of town. Everytime I finally think I know my way through here I end up exactly opposite of where I thought I was. Lot's of fun, really.
Spent some quality time with email, went to a meeting at the hostel organizing a Christmas diner, and walked to and around the University.
Christmas eve was actually quite a bit of fun. There were lots of people away from their families and everyone was very friendly and talkative. Also for the next two nights the hostel has relaxed its "No outside alcohol" rule and the cheap wine was flowing! (You can get a surprisingly good red wine for about US$.60 a liter).
The line from Billy Joel's Piano Man kept going through my head:
- They´re sharing a drink they call lonlieness, but it's better than drinking alone...
