In other news, I´m about to tear the ass out of my jeans. Overall, my clothing choices for this trip have worked out pretty well with a couple minor exceptions. I brought four t-shirts with me, expecting to wear each one twice between laundry days; having not accounted for EuroFunk, that plan was thoroughly destroyed and I have since had to buy an extra couple of shirts.
Deciding between Tivas and traditional flip-flops, I opted to go with the former, my reasoning being that they would be a little better for extended walks and traversing uneven terrain. All was well and good until their third outting when the footbed and straps completely separated from the outsole. Those are now on permanent vacation in a Spanish landfill.
Convertible pants? Great idea. Convertible pants that don´t breathe? Bad idea. I have a pair of bad idea pants.
And, then there are my jeans. Before leaving, I noted that the area in front of the pocket on the right thigh was starting to look a little worn and a small hole was starting to form. No problem, I´m sure these babies have at least a couple more months in them and in the meantime, the worn look will fit in with the current fashion trends. I hope the current fashion trends account for the gratuitous exposure of my underwear, because I failed to notice that the backside of my jeans has become completely threadbare and any extra tension is going to rip the whole thing wide open. I am now very careful when ascending large stairs and doing my morning calisthenics; additionally, everyone in the group has been put on indecency watch.
