Temptation, thy name is tapas

Thurs Jan 28


I went into town yesterday to try and set up a bank account and get myself a new mobile phone. I met up with two of my TEFL colleagues and went for a beer and some tapas, a move that resulted in neither of my two tasks getting done. We sat in a bar for 7 hours and moved on only when we had got bored with the tapas and fancied a change. So we went to the Chinese noodle bar.


Right, I'm off into town again, to open a bank account and to buy a mobile phone. I shall dress warmer today as well. I spent most of yesterday shivering (in between all the eating and drinking bits).
