happenings...

well, here's what's been going on lately. i spent friday night out at bars and clubs in the city. it was pretty fun, but i just had arrived that afternoon so i was pretty tired and left everyone at 5 am. that's actually kind of early to quit partying here. the rest stayed out til 8. but i got up at 9:30 on saturday and went with Cláudia (the Brazilian girl down the hall) around the city to see all the sites. well, we didn't quite see all of them. but we saw a few. the cathedral, the alcázar, and the main park area were all really nice.

this is the south side of the cathedral. it's hard to fit any part of it into one picture because it's the 3rd largest cathedral in the world. so... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v464/underboy777/DSC00459.jpg

this is the alcázar. it's the oldest palace still used as a royal residence in europe (if i remember right). i haven't been inside it, but i will go in soon... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v464/underboy777/DSC00462.jpg

this was my travelling companion Cláudia. we're at the plaza de españa here in the park... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v464/underboy777/DSC00430.jpg

so tonight i went grocery shopping with my roommate Fabrício and Cláudia. we sat on the bus in traffic for about an hour on the way home. it was ridiculous. it should have been a 5 minute drive. there was some accident or something, but the streets were filled with cars pointed every which way. i was surprised we got through it in our big bus. ok, so i guess that's all i'm going to write tonight.
