Chilly Shopping

I woke up on at 2 pm on May 21, 2013 to find Ivan and Lil Dave already awake.  It was lucky that we slept through all the heavy rain.  Gerard said last night that it was odd for rainy weather to occur during May in Ibiza.  It was still overcast outside though.

Ivan and I used the internet before we headed out at 3 pm.  Lil Dave decided to go explore Old Town by himself.  I think he wanted to try to see if he could find any cool monkeys to hang out with.

We went to Bar Restaurant Vara de Rey for lunch.  Ivan picked out a few tapas at the counter.

Ivan and I shared anchovies, bacalao (cod), squid and a Spanish omelet.  Lil Dave got a banana omelet.

It was a chilly day in Ibiza.  Ivan and I forgot to bring jackets, so we decided to go shopping.  I needed to find a summer dress or a swimsuit cover-up anyway.  We spent hours shopping at many stores like Jack Jones, Inside, Zara and United Colors of Benetton.

Ivan bought socks, boxers and a sweater at Jack Jones.  I found a cute white cover-up and a dark blue summer dress at Inside.

Later on, I found a pink jacket at La Sirena.  Ivan liked the jackets better here, so he decided to return his sweater at Jack Jones.  But, he remembered that he had a long sleeve shirt and that might do for now.  He doesn’t get as cold as I do probably since he grew up in England.

It was time to rest at the apartment after our long day of shopping.  I worked on the blog while Ivan used the internet. 

Ivan, Lil Dave and I went out to dinner at La Bodega which was a busy restaurant we saw earlier.  The restaurant has interesting and cool décor.

Lil Dave got a banana stuffed pepper and a banana tagliatelle.  Ivan and I shared whitebait in vinegar, small Padron peppers, patatas bravas, cod fish la bodega, vegetable croquettes and Manchego cheese.    The meal was delicious!  The food came out really fast too.

We walked back to the Dalt Vila Castle and to our apartment.  Ivan, Lil Dave and I used the internet for awhile.  Jetlag is such an annoyance.  I can’t wait until we’re back on a normal schedule.  Ivan and I went to bed at 6 am.
