Northerner Night Out
What's the point of vacation if you can't sleep in a little...or a lot? I chatted with my Mom on Skype for a while, went for a walk around 4pm and bought some dinner groceries. Traveling through Italy for the past few weeks (pizza, pasta, sandwiches) has made me crave some meat. I bought a little pepper steak and felt much better when I had it for dinner with rigatoni tomato sauce and little mozzarella balls. I decided to go on a pub crawl per Rick Steve's (my guidebook) suggestion. A guide picked us up at our hostel and a group of 4 Canadians and I marched off to Cafe Le Berry (a bar) to meet the others on the crawl. It was SO great to go out dancing and to have fun getting a free drink at each of the bars we went to. (Le Berry, Amsterdamned, Pirates, Chupitos, Royalty=Bars) Sound like college days? It was. It was also hilarious watching people from all over the world unite for a fun night of drinking, dancing and awkward-broken-language conversation. There's no expiration date on going out and having fun. I hope I'll be doing this when I'm old and have to worry about breaking a hip. I had REALLY missed the rush of dancing with the speakers full blast, lights going, and a crowded dance floor. We all made it to 5 of the 6 bars before we decided to head back to the hostel for the night. Off to bed. GOOD-night!
