At night we had everyone over in my hotel room for a "pregame" but really we just all hung out. We had music playing and everyone sat on the various beds. We played never have I ever and kings. Then some of us went to the same bar as the previous night. We grabbed three small tables and I sat down on a bar stool at a table in the corner. Some people went to get drinks so I ended up alone. This guy and his friend came up to me and we started talking. He was half Italian, half Israeli. I told him about an Israeli band I liked. We talked for a while when a fight broke out in the bar (yikes!). He left shortly after that. I then sat at a different table and talked to so members of my group. Some drama went down that I won't get into. Then I met some more Italian guys. They came up to me asking where I was from. Apparently they had see me from across the bar and placed a bet about where I was from. The one guy had guessed England or America and the other thought I was Canadian. I talked to them for a while before I left the bar with my friends. More drama ensued when I got back to the hotel and it ended up being a long night. One girl from my program was crying in the hall while a few others of us trying to console her. We moved into my room so I didn't end up in bed until 4 or 5 am.
