strong beers and farewells

I'm bruges

overcast 18 °C

So this morning was bitter sweet. The group that i met the first day had to leave. It's lame but it happens alot you meet some one or a group and yall just click and then you k ow you're gonna have to part ways and you don't want to be the last person in the group in the hostel when everyone leaves....Unfortunately I was that guy but after learning to be more open and more approachable eating people is pretty easy. While wandering and taking some much needed pictures I wandered back into the main square next to the tower. Today the local farmers and some stores had brought their caravans full of fresh meat, cured hams, cheese, breads, fruits and waffles. I bought some supplies to make a sandwich and low and behold I meet up again with Espania. He was carrying his backpack and wandering around too. I tagged along to whatever he did that day cause I Ran out of ideas. We decided to try the strongest beer in bruges. Triple distilled and amazing with cheese. Apparently the limit was 3 per person but we came back 2 hours later and drank 4. From there we went to the belgian Frys snack stand. The fries are triple fried in Animal fat and then drenched with curry sauce, to motor sauce, mayonnaise and some other sauces. It sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen but it's the best thing after some strong belgian beers. We met some girls from spain who were also traveling but only had 10 days to travel and they were spending a lot of money on Hotels for 1 night in each place. I tried to explain that hostel are cheap and fun but they thought othewise....to each his own. We went back to Bauhaus and saw a girl looking really nervous and sad so we introduced ourselves. She in return explained she was italian and had graduated college and she was in bruges because of a pretty big international ultimate Frisbee league was playing a tournament and she had to play for 3 days. Her friends were all late to the hostel and she was nervous they wouldn't show. Her name was Claudia and she was a really sweet girl but had some difficulties with the language barrier. Soon her friends met up with her and I had to bid adieu to Espania. Coolest cat from Miami I know. Tommorow it's back to amsterdam to spend the night and catch a plane to rome the day after. The hostel I'm staying at next is called coco mama. The hostels looks pretty I treating and they have a hostel pet named joop.
