His apartment is in Chueca, Madrid's gay district, which was perfect because this weekend is the annual LGBT pride festival in Madrid. Going to Madrid's gay pride parade in 2010 was so fun, I knew being in Chueca would be a great atmosphere on Friday night.
The going away party got changed last minute from Andy's apartment to a botellón in a small plaza right outside his front door. A block away were live bands and huge crowds, but our botellón was mostly just Andy's friends.

It was also one of my last nights out with Hannah for a while, as early Sunday morning she flies to Spain's island of Mallorca where she'll be teaching sailing in an English camp all month.
I didn't stay out too late (home by 3.30), as I had to be up by a decent hour on Saturday for the Photo Scavenger Hunt that Mary and I had put together for our friends.
