"We have more reasons to love each other based on our common humanity than to victimize one another because of any difference."

So Monce and I met to go to the movies yesterday. Woody Allen wrote and directed a quirky twisted love quagmire of a movie and it had an improbable but very funny plot line. SPOILER ALERT Aka main character attempts suicide but fails when he lands on a woman (sending her to the hospital) and they fall in love.

After I treated Monce and I to drinks I saw that since our last meeting she had gone and printed out all sorts of information that I had told her about. She had a map of the USA so she could understand better the location of the place I was talking about, pages and pictures of Zion National Park, a picture to show me of her family, and she pulled out a paper that was in Catalan (aka I understood very little so she had to translate). The paper explained an excursion that was happening in mid November in a town South of Barcelona. It was a mushroom hunting excursion. It is 36 euros and it includes the transportation and a big Spanish meal and of course you're in the wilderness hunting. She wanted to know if I wanted to go with her. Once again I thought that was really sweet and told her I am definitely interested.

Next Sunday her family is meeting in a town not too far outside Barcelona. She explained to me that there will be a big traditional Spanish meal and invited me to come! I was so excited! This seems like an important bonding experience for Monce and I and also just a cool cultural experience. Plus I'd get to see another town outside the city and eat Spanish food! I'm down!

But all in all I think Monce really likes me. She told me she loves how I love and am interested in everything. I told her that I consider this a once in a life time opportunity and thus I want to do, see, experience, share as much as I possibly can. There is no time to sit around! There are so many things to do and see! But Monce is a sweetie and I'm glad we are friends and that I am getting to do these fun and interesting things with her. Que suerte!
