"The Sound of Music!"
Yesterday we just had quite a relaxed day, and had a really nice tapas dinner in the evening. Today we were feeling more energetic, so we rented bikes and rode along the Strand to Redondo Pier. Our bikes were only 1-gear though, and they had no brakes, so we had to cycle backwards to stop which was really dangerous, especially as I haven't been on a bike in years! They also had baskets on the front which made us feel like the Von Trapp family from the Sound of Music! We stopped off at the Cheesecake Factory and spent about $8 on a slice of cheesecake - I know we're supposed to be on a budget but it was amazing! We ate our slices on the pier by our hostel after we had dropped the bikes back, and felt slightly sick afterwards!
We went for a really cheap Chinese tonight and then went to a bar called 'The Underground', which had red phone booths in it and old English games. I wouldn't usually go to an English bar when I'm abroad, but I think we were all craving a bit of England.
