i woke up at 3 and tried to fall back asleep. the jet lag isnīt that bad cause iīve fuct my sleeping schedule for the last month. when i arrived at my small room with blue walls yesterday t smelled of fish or some nasty stench. i fear my olfactory may have become accustom to it because today it wasnīt as offensive. i drifted in and out of sleep until five when i decided to get up and wander around. i put everything i canīt lose in my little backpack and tried to figure out how to turn on the lights in the stairway. i stumbled out across the stairwell and hit the timer switch. lights, keys, doors, these are things you usually take for granted.

i walked into the streets that had confused me the day before and headed towards the school. i bought a paper from a news stand on the way, hoping to find listings of used motorcycles for sale. i walked up a street that was mostly a park with two strips of pavement running down either side until i arrived at the school. the school wouldnīt be open until after 8 and i had a lot of time to burn. nothing was really open so i just walked around and watched a reflection of the sun coming up in the windows of some huge building.

i found an open cafe down a side street and walked in. there was someone standing at the bar as if waiting for an order so i stood behind them as if in line. turns out there was no line and the guy wasnīt waiting for an order. after two people walked by me and just sat down, i decided to mosey up to the bar. i moseyd awkwardly and took the first stool. i felt uneasy the whole time, kinda. i downed two double espressos and some weird pastry that looked like a quissont.

the sun was really up now and i walked down the big street again. there were more people and more traffic. everything was comming alive. there were tons of scooters and motorbikes. prolly 5 for every 100 cars. three quaters of those where scooters and of the remaining quater half of those were GS500Eīs. The rest ware comprised of all sorts of super bikes, bmwīs and strange things iīd never seen before. the motorbikes shared the special lane, nearest the sidewalk, with the buses and taxis. After every light change a horde of two strokes would sing thier way around circular intersections or buzz by at top speed through the straight aways. the orchestra was completed by the rare but well placed four stroke naturally harmonizing.

i need a fucking bike.

school was great, im the only estudiante de espaņola ahora. this will propably change over the next three months. me professora, paca, es muy nice and stuff. i donīt remember as much spanish as i wished, but things are moving quickly.

after class i wandered back down the big street in search of a power adapter for my laptop. on my lunch break i had found a sony service shop and a nice tall guy that spoke english. he said i just needed a power cord and marked the location of "fnac" on my map. fnac is basically circuit city. i wandered in and found another helpfull guy that spoke english. he said i only needed a cord, not an adapter. i looked on the sony power converter and it said that the input could be 110-220v at 50/60hz. yay sony doesnīt suck as bad as i thought they did with shit like that. :)

after i got my power cord i went home to shower and defrag my harddrive.

now im going to the store and finished typing this long as story.
