Clara writing:
Yesterday we went to Mini Edinburgh... meaning Stirling, a little town, famous for its castle and William Wallace, just an hour away from Edinburgh. Ainhoa enjoyed a lot by falling off on the slippering graves from the graveyard next to the castle... very scary... I think that's why I had so many nightmares last night... I was off on Sunday so I decided to visit Glasgow... a not-so-nice-but-very-trendy city. The first thing I did after jumping off the bus was getting lost... I couldn't have done that faster... and I carried on getting lost for the whole day... Now, I think that my problem with right and left is something serious...
You are the weakest link, good bye!!

Hey yous! Ainhoa writing now!
Clara is gone to the gym...she's feeling a bit guilty after the last "treats-night" at the lovely lodge...
The girls got crazy and even ran to the cold...to catch the "ice-cream man" ...(you know, the one who drives around, playing some stupid melodies..telling those who crave -as the girls usually do- he's the last chance to get something to bite.. )
now the girls name him the "Treats man"...and he has become now their new threat...wooooo!
Ainhoa was also feeling guilty...and ran to the gym too...yesterday!
This was after they came back from Stirling...such a lovely place! Little Edinburgh really it is! Nice people there, nice castle, nice afternoon teas, nice graveyards...and mountains and so on!
The thing the girls enjoyed most was chasing a poor scottish piper who was performing for a private wedding ceremony at the castle...until they finally got it...! they got a photo taken with him...and they did make him feel a bit embarrassed too! ...sorry, sometimes we have to do the "tourists" too!
As for feeling emabarrassed...Ainhoa knows now very well this feeling...since she went out one night with Pep, a catalan friend she works with, and they both became the main attraction of the pub...just for being spanish...The thing is the pub was all packed with south-africans and scottish (rugby thing...big event here!) who decided that being spanish was the best thing in the world, and of course, that Spain was also the best country ever...and so on...(No need to say they were all pissed) and they ended up singing silly spanish songs around the poor guys, and then...yelling "Essssspaaaañaaaa!" Once and again...Boof. Pep couldn't believe it...!
Nice people though...
So... days passed by and Clara and Ainhoa didn't see each other...until...sunday (and since tuesday!) they met again at the lovely lodge! Yeah! This was good!
Today's farewell day for the girls again, Tuesday to Sunday they split apart, they do their own stuff...and evenctually...they meet again. Hard life!

Y ahora en Spanish...que duro esto de tener que traducir una y otra vez! nada, deciamos que ayer nos fuimos a Stirling, a visitar el castillo (dicen que el mas importante de Escocia...vaya en nuestra guia esta calificado como uno de los "top 40" !!!) y bueno, no estuvo nada mal! Nos gusto, la verdad. Stirling es como un Edimburgo en pequeñito...muy muy bonito, solo que te lo acabas en un segundo. Lo mejor del Castillo fue quizas seguir al pobre gaitero que actuaba para una boda privada que se celebraba en ese momento...hasta que por fin conseguimos una foto con el...Nada, que las dos pareciamos amigas de los novios...Eh, eso si, una boda super escocesa eh? con faldas a cuadros, gaitas y olor a salchicha flotando en el aire...
Las vidas de Clarisa y Ainhoisa siguen adelante...De martes a domingo no se ven....a saber lo que hacen la una cuando la otra no esta ............mmmm?
Ainhoa por fin se fue a un pub una noche...(es que esto de levantarse tan pronto la ha convertido en un ser DIURNO, asi con mayusculas)...Ella y Pep, un amiguito catalan con el que trabaja y habla catalanglish, se fueron a un pub justo un dia de rugby (Escocia y Sud Africa...grandes rivales)...y acabaron rodeados por escoces y surafricanos con una cuantas pintas de mas...que les cantaron una nueva y estupida (aun mas, si cabe) version del himno...ejem, nacional...ese que dice "Franco franco que tiene el culo blanco...y su esposa tiene las tetas rosas..." En fin, estupidez en el mundo la hay por doquier...y Ainhoa no va hacer ningun comentario mas al respecto. Pero fue divertido!
Los domingos son dias de reencuentro para las lovelies amiguitas y es entonces cuando deciden hacer salidas aqui y alla...la proxima esta programada para dentro de dos fines de semana...y seran las Highlands! Yuuuuuuju!
Clara sigue adicta a los cereales y a su lovely hotel (no sin razones...que Ainhoa la ha ido a visitar y no veas tu...que lujo de sitio!) AH! hemos de añadir una nueva adiccion...Michael Jackson! (Whos's Bad!) Digamos que en sus ratos libres...esta estudiando una super coreografia para las canciones del rey del pop...
Ainhoa sigue adicta al gym, a la bici y a las sopas.
Las dos son chicas felices aunque no comen perdices....

Vaya, Clara ha regresado del gym,...ahora esta haciendo estiramientos...y os dice una cosa: Who's Bad????

HASTA PRONTITO! SEE-US-LATER!
