New Happenings in Spain
Other notes, Lisa arrived safely on Thursday! We have enjoyed our short time together so far. We explored Girona a bit yesterday. I think Lisa likes it so far. Last night we met with the landlord and signed the lease on our first apartment in Spain! Then we bought Lisa a pretty little key-ring for her key. The spare key we had made for the apartment cost 9 euro! What a rip! After getting the apartment stuff taken care of, we had our first dinner in Girona. We chose a restaurant on the Rambla (walking mall area by the river). Neither of us were impressed and will likely not be returning there for another meal.
Following dinner, I took Lisa to one of my favorite places (of the few I know in Girona) for a crepe. The attraction is not necessarily the deliciousness of the crepes, but more the vibe of the restaurant. It is built inside of an old building and has a lot of character with such things as a school bus inside the building with a table inside of it! And the tables have paper place mats and crayons! We enjoyed our time together and joined the clean plate club!
