On Saturday, Jeff, Victor, Alberto, Stephanie, Jaisha, Emma, Eric, Julia, and myself all drove to Tarragona to stay in Victor's parents beach house. It was really beautiful and had a great view of the beach.Just after we got there, there was a crazy storm - Victor said he'd never seen one like it. The winds were strong enough to spin around a crane that was outside, and it dropped hail the size of a quarter. Luckily, it cleared in time for us to go for a swim in the pool.
We picked Monica up from the airport around 10pm - she was delayed only a bit, and then went back to the house for dinner. After dinner, we sat around the table chatting, playing games, and drinking callimocho - a special Spanish drink that consists of (bad) red wine, coke, and sugar. It's actually very good!Around 2:15am, we headed out to a club nearby for a little dancing. It was a huge place, with multiple floors with different kinds of music. We had a great time, but since we were a little tired, compromised on heading home before too late - around 5am. It was quite the introduction to the Spanish concept of time for Monica.
The next morning we got up and spent a few hours on the beach, before heading back to Victor's to cook and eat lunch. It was a great weekend - laying on the beach all day was a welcome change from sitting in lecture all day!
