As Chloe has described our plane rides weren’t to terrible. After one regular night of sleep in the hotel I have recovered from the horrible jet lag. The hotel here is quite nice. We have a beautiful view from our balcony of the harbor. Haley, Chloe and I share a room next to mom’s and dads. I must say I enjoy it. :-D The food here is delicious! Breakfast and lunch you have not too much, but just enough of yummy homemade cooking. Supper on the other hand... They just keep bringing more and more food. Our dinner tonight only took two hours, but we’re told that they usually take four. So you sit down to eat at 7:00, and finish at 11:00. AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today we toured St. Hilarian’s Castle. It’s amazing!!! I climbed up by myself at first (with the rest of the group in sight behind me) so I could explore all the dark rooms in the quiet. Makes it so much more enjoyable! Just listening to your thoughts while wandering through the barrack, the royal apartments, kitchen, and watch towers, it really makes you think about what life must have been like back then. It was like a maze, it never ended in any direction. We just kept wandering around until we thought we had seen it all. Afterwards we went to lunch, and then went shopping for random things. Then we went to the hotel and went for a quick swim and got ready for the incredibly short supper which only lasted two hours!!! After supper we got an invitation to go disco dancing (with two teenage girls in our group and a few adults) this Saturday from 11:00p.m.-5:00a.m. on Sunday morning. Lol, I highly doubt we’ll be able to make it. (how do you “disco dance” anyway?!?!) But now I can say I’ve actually been invited to one!
Well I must bid thee farewell for now, Chloe is restlessly walking up and down our small floor behind me griping at how late it is. (1:15a.m., it’s 4:15p.m. where you guys are) I’m “supposed” to get up early tomorrow so we can go for an early swim in the hotel pool. (Haven’t been to the beach yet, hopefully we will in a few days. We’re on a “strict” schedule with our group from the university.) Love ya lots!!!
