Watch your bags in Barcelona! Must have seen about 5 people getting pickpocketed, in the space of a day. And no-one will help or cares.

Hehe by Gray Line I meant the bus tour folks... they tend to take on a lot of J1-ers. I lived out on the southside in Hyde Park, which unfortunately wasn't near a L line. There was a bus stop outside my door though, so that was nice.

We were the guys in the blue tshirts on the side of the road beside all the tourist attractions. Arrived here yesterday, staying on Michigan and Wacker... my room wasn't ready when I arrived so they gave me the penthouse instead for the same price. View is incredible!!

knulla mig means f*ck me :P

yeah, I live in the southern part of Sweden... Anywhere cheap.. Hmm. I don't know really. Malmo (where I live) is good because it's very close to Copenhagen, so you can visit them both.

Can I stay at your house? :D Mammy joiyua would look after me I'm sure.

I'm not sure if I'm going any more now or not due to lots of different reasons but we'll see I guess

Depending on this Swine Flu pandemic I am supposed to be going to La Paz in the Baja Peninsula end of May.
Anyone been to that neck of the woods?
