 Well Howdy everyone. Today is my second day here in Barcelona and I am absolutely loving it! There is some crazy awesome architecture around the city. I got here yesterday around 9:00 in the morning and had orientation later in the day. 

Well Howdy everyone. Today is my second day here in Barcelona and I am absolutely loving it! There is some crazy awesome architecture around the city. I got here yesterday around 9:00 in the morning and had orientation later in the day. We took a walk after the orientation and got to see some really cool places and buildings. They have a McDonalds and Burger King right around the corner from eachother in La Plaza de Catalunya, which I found amusing. However today we went for a much longer hike, which I don't think anyone was really prepared for. It started at the bottom of a hill and was a straight up out back kind of hike, but we got to see a good view of the city and took some pictures. It was a really beautiful hike. After we finished, we were rewarded with a traditional Catalan lunch at a little place on the hill. Everyone in the program is really nice and I am really excited to start classes tomorrow, it will be very beneficial for my Spanish! I am happy to report that I have been able to talk with my home mom in Spanish well, and I had to purchase some eye drops from the pharmacy today and communicated just fine. Very exciting! Buen día.

    Bake Bake! I am so happy for you, proud of you, and a little (ok actually a lot!) jealous of you! Take lots and lots and lots of pictures and whatever you do don't order the Mahou (I think thats how you spell it but I could be wrong) at McDonalds! I thought it was a cool Spanish pop but actually is a Spanish beer... Ooh and make sure you check out the fancy dessert part of McDonalds! I don't think they all have it but once you see one you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Ooh and the Starbucks there have awesome pastries and carry coffees that the US stores don't! Have fun babe! :)
