Day 5 in Segovia

Wow, Segovia ( has captured me again!!! I have tons of photos and plan on uploading them soon but right now that requires too much effort for my exhausted body.

For now I'll tell you that the castle, the cathedral and the aqueduct are just breath-taking. I had been to Segovia before but for some reason this time was way more enjoyable. I took tons of photos. Yesterday's trip to Toledo was great but Segovia blew it out of the water.

Aimee and I missed the train...again. That's just what happens when you try to plan anything the next morning (11:30 a.m.) when you live in Madrid and everyone stays up till 4 a.m...and when i say everyone I pretty much mean everyone.

Ok, it was kind of a hassle (only because of the late time) getting to my next couchsurfing apartment but a great welcoming we got. We show up to a group of 8 people. One from Mexico, six from France and one Spanish native. All of them are fluent in French and Spanish and can carry on a conversation in English but not fluently. One of the more interesting things about this group is that at this table all three languages are spoken at all times depending on who started the conversation and who was being addressed (Anyone want to go in on getting the Rosetta Stone with me?).

So when we arrived we were escorted to this rooftop terrace in South Madrid for a BBQ and party. Yes, another party. The only strange thing about this BBQ and party is that it started at 11:30 p.m. It is now just baraly past 1 a.m. and we were just given some homemade cake. Yes, I love Spain.

Well as this party starts going strong I am off to bed...plane to London at 7:35 a.m. and we have to leave by 6:15. Exactly what I need right now, no sleep. :) Oh well, I can sleep when I get back to OKC.
