Gaining a new understanding

Of things that give you away as an American

Apparently, Europeans don't put braids in their hair. I found this out last night in one of the bars we went to, news to me! The guy who told me, first asked me if I was American and then proceeded to explain that he knew because of my hair.

We started the night splitting two bottles of wine between everyone in our group that came out. It was quite the experience being about to sit outside in a park and be able to drink, especially when you get to sit with some beautiful architecture on one side of you and a river on the other. After that, we headed across the bridge to bar hop. Drinks, for the most part, are super cheap here. A shot of tequila or a glass of tinto de verano, usually 1€ (depending, of course, what type of bar you're in: the extremely popular ones tend to charge more). We wanted to go dancing, as well, which generally starts around 3 am. However, we decided it would be better to try it tonight when we were all more appropriately dressed because some of us were a little dressed down for a nice club (including me). We got quite a few recommendations for this one place so we plan on trying it out tonight.

For today, SHOPPING. I want either a dress I can wear with my red shoes, or new shoes that I can wear with one of my dresses.
