Hello! I’m in Lisbon, Portugal right now, and my hostel has a computer with free internet, so I thought I’d stop by and say hi. Unfortunately, this computer is working terribly and I can’t connect to most of the sites I’d like to visit, so I probably won’t be online long.
The reason I’m at the hostel now rather than out exploring is that, long story short, lots of chaos happened this morning, and everyone I was supposed to be traveling here with had to come on a later flight, so I’m here alone for now. I managed to get a taxi from the airport to the hostel, which was a bit of a daunting task since I’m by myself in a country where I don’t know the language, but we more or less communicated using Spanish. The hostel is really cute. The areas of Lisbon we drove through weren’t all that exciting, and, aside from all the Portuguese everywhere, it looks like it could be part of Madrid. I’m looking forward to exploring the more interesting areas once my friends arrive.
Grr. This internet is frustrating me, so I think I’ll get off of it. Adeus!
