 Well month two is officially here and just like last month, the program has a lot to offer. 


The second session is officially upon us here in Barcelona, and I am sure this month will be just as adventurous as the last. Yesterday I got to meet a few of the people from session number two while we took a tour of Barceloneta and then had Paella at a restaurant by the beach. The tour was nice, however it has been extremely hot the past week. It was definitely nice to be able to sit down in the shade and enjoy a nice, large meal. This months group is much bigger than last months, but everyone seems to be nice and looking forward to the experience abroad. Like last month, the program has a lot of activities planned including a weekend excursion to Valencia. The excursion to Costa Brava was unbelievable and I am really looking forward to the trip to Valencia! I am also really looking forward to classes starting back up on Monday. I know it's not very common to look forward to classes, but I really enjoyed last months and am excited to get back in the swing of Spanish. Classes will also be a great way to meet more people and get to know them better. 

However, this week off from school has been very nice. I had a great time at the concert in the park, and would definitely recommend anyone who is in Barcelona to take advantage of these concerts. I finally was able to go to Parc Güell today. I explored the park and then had a nice packed lunch and read for a bit. Tomorrow is the first of the month, which means it is free museum day. I plan to see a few museums including the Picasso Museum and the MNAC-National Museum of Catalan Art. We will see how many I actually make it to. I also plan to go to gay pride here in Barcelona tomorrow, which should be very interesting to see. Barcelona is a city much more open to homosexuals than anywhere I have seen in the United States, and there is a very large gay population here. I am looking forward to seeing how this will be. After the parade I plan to go to a bar to watch the Spain Vs. Italy soccer game. I am looking forward to the next month and am sure it will have just as many great memories as last month. Buenos noches.
