I think I’m finding myself in bars a bit too much; the one here in Cat’s Hostel has been a great place to meet fellow travelers. Although they are all from different places around the world, everybody speaks some form of English as the primary method of communication. I was hanging out with a cool group of people at the hostel who I met last night, when 2 girls from San Diego said they were heading to a friend’s house party here in Madrid. We all became intrigued, and left immediately.
After wandering around the streets following these girls into a few random boring bars, it became apparent that they knew nothing of this city. My friends from the hostel and I parted ways with them, and ended up in an awesome rock club.
The DJ was playing the Strokes, Interpol, and a few other great bands that I’ve never heard before. I went to compliment him on his great selection of music, and found his name to be Oscar. It turns out that he spoke good English, and happens to be a drummer. He played his band, The Cuts, and I was impressed! He invited me to another local rock club tomorrow. Who knows what the day will bring, but it sounded awesome!
What a perfect night. I’ve been talking with a South Korean girl named Ju all night, and we decided to go to Toledo together tomorrow. Early day tomorrow… G’night!
