my european vaca part 2

this is long overdue...again!

soo after Amsterdam we took a train to Paris. oh Paireeeeee! We walked like a mile to our hotel past all these dudes in leather jackets on street corners selling marobolo ciggies. "marobolo marobolo marobolo" they'd yell at you while shoving packs in your face. um NEEXT. We ended up staying like a block away from the venue we were playing at like a week later (30h3/katy perry show) which ruled. I ate a ton of paninis and falafel oh and cheese and bread..bleh i can't wait to come home to mexi food!
Our first night was Allyce's birthday, we went to a lovely italian dinner and then had a few drinks and called it an early night.
The next day we went on a 3 and 1/2 hour walking tour of Paris which ruled so hard. Our tour guide had hot pink hair and was on a US Big Brother and knows a friend of mine from weird. We learned all about Napoleon and his dick and tons of other fun facts. like: Napoleon got an STD and the way they treated stds back then was to just cut your dick off! Apparently they cut it off in 3 pieces and some dude in Dallas bought a piece of it, and now there is a museum in Dallas where you can go and see it? hahaha uhhhh. fun stuff! We also saw a bridge that is older than the US that Henry the 4th built and upon building it he had a huge party with 300 of his closest friends, got them wasted, then had an artist sketch their faces, which are all now carved down the bridge. Its funny cause all their faces look wasted and fucked up. haha

after the tour we pulled our tour guide, James, aside and asked him where all the good places to go were to have a good time. he offered to take us out cause he and his fiance were starved for some american hangouts! They kept throwing beers and shots at us the whole night it ruled. The first place we went was this stock exchange bar-most genuis idea ever. Then we went to some bar i dont remember then ended up at a metal bar. James ended up getting so wasted he threw up alll over his fiance and my leggings. Then Alex fell smack on his face and was bleeding everywheree. we thought he had lost a tooth or 2. We went to take a cab home, Alex halfway got in, but the cabby wouldnt turn around to take us the other direction so we got out and after he sped off i looked down and realized alex had lost a shoe in the cab haha so good!! I also peed in a train station at one point in the night. Most epic night of the trip.
The next day we went to the catacombs and I found out I can become klosterphobic in some circumstances and that sucked, but still, human bones stacked for miles was an amazing thing to see. We went to the eiffel tower and did that whole thing too.
We took a train from Paris to London after that. London was by far my favorite city for eating. They had tons of vegetarian places! Finally no more cheese and bread! We didn't do tooo much in London. Just explored around our hotel in Camden and went out a little bit (all the bars closed by like 1:30am). I want to move back to London for a bit I think.
Finally, Peter picked me up from our hostel to start our journey to the tour. We hired Peter as our driver/helper with tour managing with all the European stuff.
We took a 20 hour ferry from a place 2 hours outside of London to somewhere in Denmark and then had a 10 hour drive to Sweden.

I'll leave it at that for now. I'll update the rest later. latah alligatahz!
