I left Sevilla May 18th to head to Santiago de Compostela. Now I’m sitting here in Santiago de Compostela in a guy named Jon’s house who I met through couchsurfing.com.
He might be the smartest person I’ve ever met. He’s a theoretical physicist working for the University of Santiago de Compostela. Basically, he gets paid to go to an office and do math to figure out how the universe works using stuff like string theory. He’s great though, and excellent cook. The night after I got here his friends from Colombia and South Africa came over and made dinner for everyone. It was really fun. Tomorrow night Jon and I are going to try to cook octopus, so we’ll see how that goes.
Oh yeah, and the title of this blog- if you fly into Rues airport via Ryanair to get to Barcelona, it’s worth it to pay the 5 euro to go see the city of Reus, it’s like a little Barcelona only cleaner and more family friendly. Great day trip.
Miss you all at home. Keep on keeping on.
