I was going to post about my first day in Valencia, but then I realised that all the photos I posted in my last entry were pretty self explanatory, so here's day 2 :)
We started off the day at a local cafe called Bertal where we bought and ate our 'brunch' :P
Today we decided to visit the famous City of Arts and Sciences, known as Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciences in Valencian, and Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias in Spanish. It consists of five different areas and is built on the old Valencian river bed of the River Turia. You can find out more here :)
Out of the different places within the 'city', we decided to spend the day at the Science Museum :P
One of the best parts of the Science Museum was the Physics level.. we took a LOT of photos..
There was an awesome part where a special camera takes a photo of you, and when you move, an image of your shadow is left on the green screen behind..
There was even a Comics section..
How cool is this?! :P It goes from pencil drawings to modern day animation!
I actually had loads of fun in the Science Museum.. we spent ages in there! Hand on heart, I can say that I hadn't had that much fun in ages! Haha (I should probably get out more XD)
We had tapas for dinner that night, and I tried Sangria for the first time! It wasn't what I expected.. for a start I thought it would be apple juice/beer coloured, but it tasted pretty good :P
There's actually a pretty funny story that comes with dinner! We were sitting eating when an old Spanish man came up to us and tried to sell us some roses. We declined, but he came back a while later and placed two roses on our table.. then pointed to some guys at another table.. turns out they'd bought us some roses. One of the guys came over later and asked us if we spoke English, where we were from, and then said that his friend wanted to know if we wanted to do shots with him XD We declined and after we'd paid the bill, we left the roses on the table and left.
I felt quite bad about it, but I wouldn't drink with some random strangers so I guess Chu was right - why give them the wrong impression by taking the flowers with us, right?
Thanks for reading! I promise I'll update soon!! And I mean it this time!
