Wow what a day. The "hike" we went on was more of a treck up Mount Everest. It was literally the most exhausting but exhilarating journey I've ever been on. I couldn't feel my feet, I couldn't breath. I was freezing and hot both at the same time. We hiked for 7 hours... SEVEN! When we finally got to the top it was overlooking all of Lugano and part of Italy and was beautiful! Completely worth it.
Last night was a blast. Our entire group walked down to the lake together after dinner to drink and play and Ashley and I split a bottle of wine. We discovered that the clubs didn't open until midnight, so we had some time to kill, and Ashley and I spotted a Wine Bar across the way. We snuck off together and walked inside and it was a much fancier restaurant than we thought! They brought out appetizers and a basket of olive and tomato bread for us with our vodka tonics. We ate anchovies.
The whole group went to a bar called New Orleans after and we salsa danced in the basement, then made our way to a discoteca, Tito's Place. Ashley ran downstairs and jumped behind the DJ booth and started DJing with a big afro man. The walls were made out of a couch. There were glass cutouts in the ceiling where you could look up and see the people dancing upstairs. There was a bathtub on the dance floor. Mixed drinks were $19 francs. It was so fun. We pushed the birthday girl home in a shopping cart.
I miss all my deltas. Can't believe I won't be there for recruitment! Have so much fun!
