They spend their few days at Colonia de Sant Jordi enjoying their luxurious room and making leisurely trips out to the surrounding beaches and various markets in nearby towns. They both enjoy the relaxed time spent together, and both feel more and more drawn to the other with each passing day.
They take a trip to an Arts and Crafts Market nearby one morning, and spend the time strolling around the stalls and taking in the relaxed setting overlooking the coast. As they wander around separately they both can’t help stealing glances at the other, and when they silently cross paths at various stages they each reach out to make some contact, placing a hand on a back or running a finger down a forearm.
They eventually come together again as Tina approaches Bette as she is completing a purchase at one of the stalls. They turn to wander through the remaining stalls together, and Tina gestures to the bag Bette is holding.
(Tina) What did you buy?
(Bette smiles) A sketch, it caught my eye
She removes it from the bag and shows it to Tina.
(Tina smiles) It’s beautiful. And a nice souvenir to bring home
Bette smiles as she returns the sketch to the bag and places her change in her purse.
(Bette) I do miss the days of collecting different coins from each country as souvenirs
(Tina smiles) Yeah, I have an old collection too
(Bette) I’m pretty sure Spain was in the EU when I was last here, but I don’t remember using Euros
Tina answers distractedly as she stops to look at some ceramics set out on a table.
(Tina) Well, there were about nine years between the EU forming and the Euro actually being used in the initial member states, which Spain was part of. I guess you were here in that time
Bette looks over at her.
(Bette) That’s an interesting fact to know off the top of your head for someone who doesn’t read ahead about a place
Tina looks up at her, and smiles and shrugs.
(Bette) Is politics an interest of yours?
(Tina) Oh, I don’t know, I guess
Tina’s attention is pulled to the woman running the stall, who approaches and they have a brief and friendly exchange. Tina eventually says a warm goodbye and they continue on through the stalls.
