Lil Dave and I woke up at 11 am on July 7, 2012. Ivan was already up. I went to get a facial at 12 pm at IBZ Look. Ivan packed everything up and met me at the salon.
We walked towards our new hotel at 1:30 pm. We went to Villa Manchega for lunch. Ivan and I shared salmon and a seafood salad.
We walked to Sol Bahia Apartamentos and checked in. We checked out the two rooms. We decided to be nice and give Charisse and Noelle the room with a balcony with a bay view – they would be arriving tonight. Our room had a living room and a bigger kitchen. Lil Dave was happy that he got the couch as his own bed.
Ivan and I chilled by the pool. We wanted to take a nap, but it was still bright when you closed your eyes.
We headed up to the room and took a long nap.
We used the internet. Charisse and Noelle’s flight was delayed from Barcelona. The girls arrived at the hotel at 8:30 pm.
Everybody got ready to go out.
We walked along the bay passing Café Mambo and Café Del Mar.
We walked to great tapas restaurant El Rincon de Pepe. We wanted to sit outside, but there wasn’t a table available.
We sat outside and ordered peppers and aubergine, squid in batter, sardines, anchovies, baked cod and fish croquettes. We chatted, ate tapas and drank rose. The food was delicious again.
Ivan, Charisse, Noelle and I walked along the beach. Ivan thought we should get a drink before heading to the nightclub Privilege. Ivan and I thought Ibiza Rocks looked good.
We sat down and got a drink at Ibiza Rocks. Ivan and I each got a tasty passion fruit Caprioska. Noelle started talking to four guys from Wales.
We wanted to get the free bus to Privilege, but Ivan figured we should just get a taxi since we’d have to wait for the bus. We flagged down a taxi and headed off to Privilege.
A cool dome was outside where people were chilling out.
Ivan was told that Elrow wouldn’t be busy, but there was definitely a lot of people in the annex. Since it was an event for locals, there was about 80% Spanish. The music was alright. It was really stuffy in the club since there was no ventilation or air-conditioning. We saw crazy clowns, a lady on an elephant (fake of course) and a gorilla.
Later, up above on a platform we saw lots of blow-up things like inner tubes and hammers. There are stages where dancers dance. A few people were up there putting circle stickers on people. I didn’t know what it meant. A couple of people were also in the crowd putting stickers on people’s faces or shirts.
The blow-ups started coming down and the people on the stages were handing out different hats like Chinese bamboo hats, umbrellas and glittery top hats.
I grabbed an inner tube and got two top hats.
We ended up getting different blow-up stuff and dancing with them.
We were about to leave and a guy wanted to switch his pirate hat with my pink glittery top hat. I thought he was going to run off with the top hat, so I made sure we exchanged at the same time. The pirate hat was so much cooler while the top hat was cheap looking. It was a fun night!
