After, we headed over to the pub called the Cricketer, where they were hosting a Beer Fest out back. I was able to have a few tastes of two different ales, (one tasted like a Belgum - citris flavor, and the other was like a red), but I stuck to my favorite, an IPA, & later had a shot of Glennlivit to end my night. It was such a great time to share with new friends and get a comepletely different feel for a small town. While I enjoyed it, I will probably not be doing this very often, but hopefully there will be another night before the end of my 3 months stay.
At lunchtime, I met Annie at the one Mexican restaurant in town... it was medium quality and only half-way-mexican-american-like food. But, it was filling and a fair price. Their tortilla chips were like Doritos. I may only go back there for an emergency quesadilla. When I just can't help myself. LOL
Sunday was a day of being lazy and going out for more sun-kissed walks all over town and in parks. I found myself exploring more of the town. Even if I am still a guest here, I'm definitely beginning to feel more comfortable in my travels. After, I met with Annie to go for lunch at a little cafe. A great place for lattes and sandwiches.
Oh yeah, the best part of my day... I got to book and plan my own trip to Paris for 2 nights later in October, during our 2 week mid-term break! This is the first time I've ever been able to book a trip for just myself to go to another country. (Aside from coming to the UK) I'll be staying in an all female dorm room in a hostel, and it's near The Louvre! It gets better.... wait for it.... since I'm an art teacher here, I will be able to get in for free! I'm so excited that I'm going to have a hard time falling asleep.
And with that... I will say good night.
