Today was an easy drive of just three hours to the city of Valladolid. I’m still not sure how to pronounce the name but they are nice people. David and I checked into the nice hotel and discovered free wifi so we spent a couple of hours surfing the net and chatting via Skype. We then venture into the big city in search of food and booze. We found ourselves in a Pizza Hut and shared a supreme and BBQ pizza and a couple of Fanta Limon soda pops. Then came the big test of finding a bar.Valladolid is full of small bars but most look like a local hangout where we weren’t welcome. We wandered the streets for over an hour until I saw a place that looked perfect.
It was perfect.The bartender was fun and the other patrons were fun too. I did a few tricks and soon had a huge audience of fun people. David happened to have a deck of cards and I did a little show for some new friends from Germany and Spain. Alexander, Louis, Caroline, Evelyn, Desiree and Aitor were a fun audience and we had a great evening.
When the evening ended our bartender Aitor would not allow us to pay for all the drinks we had consumed…and we consumed plenty! I gave him a 40 Euro tip since he would not take our money for the drinks and took a couple of photos and signed a few autographs before we headed for bed.It was only 2:30 in the morning so basically the earliest night of the tour!
