Hey, Todd, I'm going to tell you about my wax museum story. Um, so I would go with my little host brother,
Javi, on our little dates because he never went into the city, although he lived really very close to the
city, he would just never go into Madrid. So, he was always wanting to go, so I would, you know, pack him
along and, "Alright, Where do you want to go?" and he wanted to go the wax museum one day. So we go to this

absolultely still, he wasn't moving at all, and he was like,"and you!" and the guy said, "What about me?" and I
swear to God, Javi, screamed like a little girl, and ran at me, and I was like, "I'm sorry, senor. He didn't
mean anything by it. It's OK." But he get a chance to insult him, thank God, but yeah it was cute. It was really
