Well the trip started off a little rough!! As my last blog ended i just got to the hostel from the airport and was trying to figure out everything. Well i came to malaga to meet up with some family friends and my phone was not working at all!! So i spent the day going around to phone places to figure out what i needed to do, i finally just put more money on one of my sim cards, it got a lil frustrating that i was the only one that could speak english!! Well i walked around all day and went back to the hostel and took a lil nap!! I got up around 6 and walked down to the main street of shops and i guess this last weekend was the CARNIVAL celebration for spain, its sort of like halloween but its a 3 night celebration. I dont know what they did the first night, the second night, when i was there, they had a huge parade and live music. There were thousands of people in the streets, it was pretty cool. Alot of little kids were dressed up and some adults!! I sat and watched everything for a couple hours, than i went back to the hostel and hung out with some people staying there. I met some cool people staying at the hostel.
Well sunday, i got up and caught a bus 2 hours to Marbella, to meet up with the family friends!! They came and picked me up and took me to the boardwalk/port/beach somewhere near marbella, it was all confusing. Well we had lunch at a small restaurant on the beach front. It was beautiful. The weather was above 70 degress, it was wonderful. We hung out there for awhile and than walked along the beach. We finally made our way back to where we started and found like a boardwalk with a ton of resturaunts and shops. It was right on the port where there was huge yachts. We finally figured out, we were in the wealthy part of spain. We started seeing ferraris and lamborginis and all kinds of nice cars. We shopped around a lil bit!! Than me, dennis, and jack got sick of shopping so we stopped at a bar. It was probably the coolest bar ive been in. The owner and his buddies just came in and started drinking. We come to find out that it was the owners birthday!! We started talking to him and all his friends. They were really cool. One of the owners is a professional soccer player from the UK and now owns 38 bars in that area with his partner. We met a guy that does real estate for all the celebrities, mel gibson is one of his clients!! Anyways we than went to dinner and went back to their condo!! We caught some of the superbowl, WHY DID NEW YORK HAVE TO WIN!!!!
On monday i caught a bus back to malaga to check out of my hostel and get my bag. I was sitting at the computer and i started talking to this girl from atlanta!! Her name is Bridie!! Well shes over here for 10 months and is going to work in Switzerland for a lil bit. So we left to hike the castle, but it was closed. So we walked towards the beach and walked along the beach for a couple hours and just talked!! I was pretty much wasting time til my plane flight, so i walked with her to the market to get some food and than went to the airport. I didnt get home til 130 this morning, but it was well worth it. Overall it was a fun trip and i hate to be back in this horrible weather!!
