On July 6, 2012, Ivan, Lil Dave and I went to get breakfast at 12:30 pm. Lil Dave had a banana pancake. Ivan and I each got scrambled eggs on toast. Ivan also had baked beans.
We walked around to the hotel that we’re staying at tomorrow. It has a pool and a view of the bay.
The day was cloudy and it looked like rain.
We walked along the bay to find a place for lunch. We couldn’t find anything good. The sun had come out and it was really hot. Ivan bought a bottle of sparkling water.
We started walking towards the main street and we ran into the guy we shared a taxi with. It turns out that he’s 37 years old. I thought he was 25. He has a baby face and wears braces. He recommended a Thai place nearby that the locals go to.
We headed to the Casa Thai. Ivan got a tom yum soup and noodles with tofu. I got pad thai with tofu and vegetables. The food was good.
We started walking back to the hotel. It was so hot out. I just wanted to relax. I stopped at IBZ Look for a haircut while Ivan and Lil Dave headed back.
Ivan took a nap while I created mailart for my friend Noelle and my cousin Charisse. They’ll be arriving in Ibiza tomorrow night.
We headed to dinner at a great tapas joint called El Rincon De Pepe. It was a traditional tapas place which is sort of a rarity in Ibiza – especially in the ‘west end’ which is the area we are in. We had peppers, cod in sauce, fish croquettes and anchovies in vinegar.
Lil Dave got banana croquettes and a banana salad. Ivan and I shared a bottle of rose. It was a very tasty meal.
We headed back to the hotel to change. Lil Dave decided to stay in for the night.
Ivan and I went to a bar on West End street. We had a fruity drink and people watched. We walked to another bar and had another drink. A Scottish girl started talking to us. Her accent was so strong that I wasn’t understanding most of what she was saying. I just kept nodding my head. She was really sweet. She was partying with her mom since she was 22 years old. I couldn’t imagine partying with my mom. My mom doesn’t like loud music and she’s a lot older than me. Then again…maybe if she had a few drinks inside her and the music was good…….
We walked to Es Paradis for the Water Party. It took awhile to get in. I started talking to a guy in line since I was buzzed. If I was sober, I probably wouldn’t have started a conversation.
We danced for hours to the great funky house music. At 4 am, the water started coming out in the circular area with Moby’s song It’s Raining again playing. The water just keeps on coming out of the floor and the circular area becomes a big pool. It’s crazy!! We were soaked with water. Guys were jumping in the water and crowd surfing. I wanted to crowd surf. It was fun dancing in the water.
We left around 5:30 am and it was cold outside since we were wet. We walked about 10 minutes to get to our hotel.
