I Have Discovered La Rambla!
Holy cow this street rocks. Why don't they advertise it more? Such a good atmosphere. Beautiful people, fun loving atmosphere, beer, wine, sangria, tapas, what else does one need in life? I have a feeling that I will be spending a lot of time here. Thank goodness I am not going home until Sunday! I have been here 2 nights and have bonded with La Rambla. But at a price. My bonding has come to the determent of my mobile phone which I dropped at 2am on Sunday night/Monday morning while partying with Clemens Vasters and the whole team of newtelligence. It is dead. So RIP my awesome Panasonic GU87 GSM Photo Flip Phone.
So Kevin Collins and I went shopping (and had to go into a Spanish home depot to ask directions to a shopping mall) and a cute almost English speaking lady sold me a Nokia 7250 tri-band phone with a camera, GPRS and FM Radio. It was a challenge with the language barrier to get an unlocked phone that was tri-band and will work in the US when I get home. It is far superior and not even available in the United States for some strange reason. It was unlocked, so I plugged in my SIM chip and was off to the races in 2 seconds (GSM ROCKS). Kevin called and SMSed me to test no problem. THe first incomming call on my new phone came from my buddy Remi Caron from the Netherlands, who had just arrived in Spain and had 5 liters of beer in him already and invited Kevin and I to join he and his other compatriot at La Rambla. So Monday night/Tuesday morning I partied again after the Imagine Cup with Kevin, Remi and Mark (another Dutch friend) mostly talking about how much Fox Pro sucks and taking embarrassing camera photos and emailing them back home immediately. (Sorry Remi.) We got lots of girls to show us their tattoos and such. Photos here (site in Dutch)!
