lesson number 7: set up the trip EARLY.
last night we found we had nowhere to stay and no train pass. and the only way to get a pass is by mail, and we didn´t have an address.
after frantic scurrying, we booked a hostel in nice old mataro, right on the beach, a 40 minute train ride from barca. my mom´s sending my extra charger cord, hopefully, and hopefully we´ll get it, and hopefully our eurail tickets will come.
and did i mention it´s raining? here´s an example of our priorities: we have one small umbrella, and we used it to shield our boards from the rain while we suffered the downpour. or, at least, i did--shawn covered his head.
see you soon, faithful web-lurkers.
love, colin (and shawn)
