    Last Thursday, Liz, Nikki, our other friend Emily and I ate at Gusto del Born (as recommended by the Strandburgs). We had the pasta of the day (lasagna) bread and drank fantas! We were definitely expecting regular meat or veggie lasanga and ended up with PUMPKIN.. yes, PUMPKIN lasanga.. how strange. However, it was quite delicious. I'm really enjoying trying new foods in different places in Barcelona. Until this meal, …

    Last weekend we went to Madrid as a group! We took the aerobus to the airport and then took a quick flight over to Madrid. I loved the experience of seeing a different city besides Barcelona, because Madrid offered such a different spanish experience than Barcelona. I noticed how they dressed differently in Madrid and were not as funky with their hairstlyes. Also, I really loved how everything was in …

    So this weekend is carnaval.. it's pretty crazy. It's easily been my favorite weekend so far. It's pretty much a sweet combination of Mardi Gras and Halloween. As part of my costume I bought some hippie/gypsy pants from a hippie/gypsy store in the gothic quarter. They're the crazy saggy-looks like a skirt kind of pants that all the hippie/gypsy people wear. They are silky and purple and have a gold …

    Nikki, Emily, and I, along with another friend named Emily, all went to Gusto del Born for lunch, as suggested by the Strandbergs. We ordered the pasta del dia, which included lasanga de verduras, focaccia bread and a drink. We are still not sure if it was a zucchini lasagna or if it had pumpkin or squash in it....but either way, it was so delicious! We are really glad that …

    On February 23rd, Kelsie and I went to the premiere of 23-F, on the 30th anniversary of this day. I really enjoyed watching the movie because it was about everything that we have been learning in my contemporary spanish society class. It was surprisingly not that difficult to follow in Spanish, and it was really cool to see spanish history being represented in a movie form. Overall I'm really glad …

    On Friday February 11th Emily, Daniel, Alexa, Erika, Sindyah and I all went up to Montserrat for the day. We took the metro and then the cremallera up to Montserrat. I honestly cannot believe how beautiful it was all the way up there! It felt like we were on a different planet because we were basically above the clouds at one point. We stopped and ate lunch about halfway up …

    Monserrat- A few friends and I ventured out to monserrat which is mountain chain near barcelona. It took us about an hour to get there via train from barcelona and then we transferred to a small tram to take us up to the base of the mountain. We spent the entire day hiking and exploring the mountain and eventually ended up climbing the main peak, Sant Jeroni- which is about 4,055 ft …

    Tour of FCB Museum and BARÇA game- Over the past few weeks, Futbol Club Barcelona has easily become one of my favorite parts of the Barcelona culture. It certainly doesn’t help that I’m taking a class titled “Sports and Society” and focuses on the influence on different sports in the Spanish / Barcelona culture… and we spend a great deal of time talking about FCB. At first, I was excited to …

    Friday morning our group met at the Barcelona airport to check in for our flight. Try to imagine over 50 college study abroad students trying to all check in for the same flight… what a mess… I swear we took up over half the plane… and most people around us hated us (oh yea, they conveniently sat us ALL together) …and our flight was delayed an hour- figures. We finally …

    Refund for: Gusto del Born Restaurant 6,50 euro After our tour of the Born and walking around with Professor Strandbery and Sherry some of us really wanted to go back into the Born and check out a restuarant they had suggested. So the next day we went back and went into a few of the stores in the Born, including a more Morracan feel store where they had really cool fans …
