Journal Entry:
Brad (my roommate since I arrived in Madrid) left today so now I've got a single (actually just kep our room, but I only have to pay for a single). Slept in, did (or rather handed it over for the land lady to do) my laundry, did some shopping. Bought some rechargable battteries (NiMH) for my H/PC, the latest Stephen King novel (Wizard and Glass), and some toiletries. The evening was spent on the Plaza Mayor drinking beer and watching the world go by. Tried a Mexican restaurant for dinner (I guess I'm feeling homesick), it was good, but not at all what I'd call Mexican. As long as I was doing the mixed up nationality thing I decided to go to an Irish Pub. Spent the night playing darts with three Americans.
