Today I’m giving in for the first time and taking a nap immediately after lunch – immediately after I finish typing this, actually. I have an Activity tonight, and I must be well-rested. The school has sponsored a trip to see some … winery? Something like that downtown. I don’t understand, as this isn’t a wine region, but whatever. There are tapas afterwards and that’s all I really care about. Trip doesn’t start ’till 9, won’t officially end ’till midnight, and won’t unofficially end until tomorrow sometime.

So I need rest.

Also tomorrow (Saturday) night is the Festival of San Juan. I’ll have to go into that more when next I post, but the short version is that everyone in Málaga will stay up all night partying at the beach. And when I say everyone, I mean everyone. I’ve heard that it’s worse than Bourbon St. on Mardi Gras in terms of being able to physically move. I don’t plan on being in the thick of it but I will be there, and for this also I need to rest.

So now I rest!

Wait, no, first I tell you about lunch. Chicken soup with tiny pasta stars, a bit of celery and carrot and potato, and somehow more rich and tasty than any chicken soup I’ve ever had, and no, it’s not just the infatuation with a foreign atmosphere talking. I think maybe she put glue in there to thicken it or make it taste savory. I don’t know. It’s probably fresh-squeezed chicken or something. Main course was sauteed eggplant and zucchini (and a little onion) in a béchamel and sprinkled with grated cheese. Man was that ever good. Dessert: fresh fruit, as always.

I broke down after my entry yesterday re: chocolate and bought a Lindt 85% bar. I’ve eaten one tiny corner. It’s rich and wonderful and will probably take days to fully consume.


I miss you all.

The weather is here, wish you were beautiful.
