So I got to bed at 6.30. I know I got up before noon, but I do not remember what I did with my afternoon.... anyone who can tell me I'd appreciate. Maybe I sent emails, or took care of my pictures, or ... really I do not remember.
 
Anyway in the evening Sam and Tomo came to Palermo, we went to a restaurant that my profesora had indicated me, but an open one this time, and I had to eat the leftovers from the brits again, that's how I am getting fat. The place was cool, with shelves from floor to ceiling, filled with boxes and jars and tins of pickles and other preparations.
 
Then we met up with the other spanish students in a bar in the center, before taking a taxi to Parque Patricios, another area of town, where one of the spanish profesoras was having her birthday party.
The  area did not look very nice, mainly old factories and high walls. The taxi driver was not too sure if he wanted to leave us there! In fact the party was taking place in an old christmas balls factory, transformed into an art center, and run by a friend of the profesora. We were first, as we had decided it would be better to be there from the start to meet the other guests as they would arrive. In fact it turned out that there ha been a misunderstandig and that we shoud have brought drinks, so we went out again to buy some, and when we got back there were loads of people. We also bough foam spray cans, as it was carnival and we used them later to great extents. On the way back from beer shopping, we also stopped by to watch a murga, these bands who play drums and do a lot of dancing while parading in the streets.
At the factory there was a videoprojector projecting fractal images on a huge wall, and the shadows of people were dancing silhouettes, it was cool. I'll post pics and videos.
 
Got out of there well after dawn, walked back to catch a bus with sam tomo and david, the weather was brilliant and the sun was very welcome after a freezing night. We had to stop in some kids playground for a while, and then we thought about english breakfast and started to walk again.
