    Hola Amigos,  As I mentioned, we had our cooking class last night and it went great! It was very fun with the group all helping out to make the courses for dinner. The class was at a place called "Cook & Taste". We were split into two groups, and I was in the group with the women instructor, Karla. She was very nice and helpful. We made quite …

    ¡Bienvenidos!  Another weekend has come and gone here in wonderful Barcelona, and most definitely not without some adventures. This weekend was very enjoyable and I got to see some really great stuff at the Festival de La Mercè Santa Eulàlia. The festival took place at The Avinguda de La Catedral. To start the festival off, there was a traditional church service outside of the Cathedral, which …

    ¡Hola! Well, the weekend is upon us again. I can't believe another week is already gone. The time has been flying since I've been in Barcelona. Anyway, the Salsa class went great! It was a really fun and new experience. The dance studio was hot as the sun, but I guess that's how it is here in Spain. Many places don't have air-conditioning, so you …

    ¡Hola todos! The trip to the magic fountain was definitely a great activity, however it did start to rain half way through the show. This was very surprising to me because I wasn't really expecting this weather in Spain. My home mom Cristina had told me there was supposed to be a little rain, but it was down pouring by the middle of the show. Even still, it was amazing! The …

    ¡Hola amigos! Well today was yet another adventurous day. We all started our classes at 9:30 and finished around 4:30. I really enjoyed my intensive Spanish course and found it to be very beneficial as well as fun. I was a bit weary about having a six-hour class, however I thought it went by fast. The first part of the class is taught by a different teacher than the second, and …

    Well, the first weekend in Barcelona is coming to an end and it had quite a lot to offer. Friday we took a day trip to Tarragona, which was amazing! It took about an hour to get there, and then we went on a tour of the city. There are some beautiful and amazing things to be seen there including ruins of the Roman city that was …

    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 …

    The day I’ve been dreading has finally arrived—the last day in Barcelona. Back in January when we arrived, April seemed so far away. Four months seemed like an eternity, and I thought that maybe I’d be ready to go home by the end. I couldn’t have been more wrong. These last four months have flown by and I’d give anything to be able to stay here even for just one …

    Barcelona, and Spain in general, is all about the festivals.  If there's something to be celebrated, there's gauranteed to be a festival with a giant parade and some of the weirdest things you wouldn't expect to see on the streets (like children strapped with fireworks).  Carnaval was no different, and we all decided to trek down to Sitges, a smaller town right outside of Barcelona, for the crazy party we …

    On Mondays in February I took a salsa class.  It was by far one of the best decisions I had made.  I got to learn a lot and hopefully I can bring some moves back to the states.  It was so much fun getting to learn and dance for an hour.  We got to switch partners and we moved quickly so we could move as much as possible.  If I …
