Monday - Visit to the Consulate
All four of us went to the Consulate, but in the end only one of us could go in with Meg, and we had to come back at a later time to pick up her temporary passport. Even though Meg was stressed that it put a damper on morning plans, we had a lovely coffee at a very local café. We weren't very successful with our plans since as we arrived at the Picasso Museum we saw the closed on Mondays sign. We did have a wonderful lunch at the port where I tried a noodle paella. It didn’t look so appetizing but it was very tasty. It was Meg’s favorite meal.
We hopped up on the bus to get back to our hotel after sightseeing and as we were trying to find a seat on the top of the bus, the bus driver started driving like a maniac. Meg said to me, "What's that movie with Keanu Reeves and the bus? Are we in it?" Everyone on the bus spoke different languages but we were all laughing at the bus driver.
