"So I'm really stressed out. So I went shopping all day and just, like, shopped and shopped until my credit card maxed out and I was, like, so embarrassed."
Said to me a young lady I was talking with. I'm a little stressed out too since I'm still in Barcelona and have just been told that getting my kayak from the port will cost me an arm and a leg (I need both to paddle).
I'm meeting interesting people here in the hostel though. This morning I went jogging with a girl training for a marathon. She explained to me that 9-11 was a conspiracy caused by the US government.
While I wouldn't have put it beneath the former administration, I don't think the US government is competent enough to do that sort of thing.
