The bus deperted from Lisbon at 9pm, and arrived Madrid at 6:30am.

When I went to ticket counter to buy a ticket, I found there are 7am, 9am, every 2hours bus to Barcelona, so I wanna ride on 7am one!

Buuuut, it was full,,, so just I could buy 1pm one..No~~~...

My plan was 9am and arrive Barcelona 5am though, I will arrive there 10pm....oh no...

But there is no option, so I have to ride this.

The ticket price Madrid to Barcelona 25.52Euro

There are half day free time though, I couldn't sleep well of course, so sleepy,

I slept on a bench 4 hours.

Every 1hr, a police came to look around, so here is not dengerous place to sleep(lol).
Finally it was 1pm, I rode on a bus, so let's go to Barcelona~!! ....the bus didn't start in 30min..
What a Spanish bus....

The bus run on this road, finally I arrived at Barcelona at 10pm~!!!

Oh, Losbon..

To be honest, I didn't make plan to visit Portugal first.
But some friends said Portugal was good, so I decided to come here...though...

Well, I wanna go to Barcelona tonight by night bus, so I go to bus terminal first.

Walk, walk, walk.

I was walking with seeing map, suddenly a man tryed to talk with me with some language.
At first I ignored him though, just I said "I go to Sete Rios", after that he said like this.

"I go to Sete Rios with you, and take lunch together"

and followed me.

What a strange man..!?!?

Anyway, I head to Sete Rios though, he follow me.
What is he doing here as today is Monday...
He had sunglasses, so I couldn't know his face clearly though, he said his age is 25 and student.

I see...but it seems older though...
Well I have no idea about foreigner's age though..

Eventually, he followed me until bus terminal(Sete Rios).

Well, I buy a bus ticket to Barcelona but,,,, there is no bus to Barcelona!?!?
From Lisbon, there is a bus just to Madrid, so I have to change the bus thre.


Moreover, I can't buy a ticket from Madrid to Barcelona here, so just I bought a ticket to Madrid by 36Euro now...
I will see later...in Madrid...

Then I thought I go to museum though, the strange man still follow me, if he want follow me, I don't mind..

But the museum was closed as Monday, No~~~~(Cry).
That's the story, I should have visited a museum yesterday~~~(>_<)

Stranger man take lunch, so we went Portugese restaurant together,

we ate these.

The man had a white hair a bit in his hair, so I didn't think he is 25years old, so I asked him real age, finally he said he is 43 years old.

He was so strange and weird but it seems he is interested in Japan, so I thought he is not so bad man???

But he said bad word a bit, he made me bad feeling and I thought go away somewhere though, he said sorry, so I still forgive him to follow me.

Well,,, I had no idea what he want to do.

Anyway, he wanted to pay the lunch, so he paid it.

Today I really wanted to go sight seeing, so I head to the place Carlos recommend.

Still the strange man follow me.
He said his job is old book seller though, he is soooo strange and yucky.

We rode on a metro and off at Chiado, I wanna hung around there but he annoy me to take a picture of me (by my camera.)
And also his suggestion of taking spot is not tourist sight but just in front of H&M.
I really really don't need such a pictures, so I decline it.

I wanted to hung around a arere Carlos suggested but the man try to take me other side David took me yeasterday.

"I wanna go to see Church! one of the tourist spot!"
"No, you can't go there, it's religeous spot"

I can't understand him at all.

What he want to do!?!?

I thought he show me around, it's Ok, I didn't mind if he follow me.
But he was selfish and strange and annoy and yucky, so I walked faster and went away.

Whoa~~,,, it was soooo strange....even in Lisbon there is such a starange man...?

Well.. then.. this is a church


......well,,,,, I came to Lisbon but it was no fun here....
Tell me the good spot of Lisbon for me~~!!
There were many strange people around me..

Just one good thing was Carlos, he was nice person.

Then I went back to Carlos's house, I said good buy and thank you, then I picked my baggage and go to bus terminal.

To Madrid 36Euro

I wish I can get the bus to Barcelona quickly in Madrid....

The bus was night bus, long distance but the toilet was broken...No way~~..(Cry)
