                Today was probably my favorite cultural activity so far! We went to a little cooking school called “Cook and Taste” to learn how to cook Spanish food! The school was pretty close to my apartment, so we walked through the Born and met up with the rest of the class at a metro stop in that neighborhood. We divided up into two groups—one group got the lesson in English …

                Well, it's official. Every day that I'm here I fall more and more in love with Spain. I would definitely be okay with staying here forever, but I'm not sure how my host family would feel about that idea... They might be sick of me after 4 months :)             Anyway, last night Hillary and I had yet another great adventure! We went to see a concert at the …

                First weekend trip of the semester! We left for Zaragoza at 9am on Friday morning and just got back last night around 9:30pm. Zaragoza is such a beautiful city and we saw so much within those two days that I feel like I have been gone for at least a week!             The first day there we toured two different cathedrals and learned about their history. My favorite cathedral was …

                Today it has been exactly a week since I arrived in Spain. I’ve finally mastered the public transportation thing and can find my around pretty well now. I don’t stand out as much either, as long as I’m not with our entire class group. Being able to blend in has given me a lot more opportunities to just observe the people here and their way of life.             What immediately …

                Today is the third day here in Barcelona. The flight was fairly comfortable and went by surprisingly fast. It was 15 hours long in total—8 hours from Chicago to Paris, a 5 hour layover in Paris, and 2 hours from Paris to Barcelona. We were completely exhausted when we finally arrived around noon, but we jumped right into activities and didn’t go to sleep until about 11:00 that night. …

                I can’t believe that I will be in Barcelona in less than a week! My flight leaves O’Hare in four days, and I haven’t even packed yet… I’ve been so busy with work, filling out forms for med school, and seeing friends that winter break flew by! I’ve been looking forward to this semester since freshman year, but it still doesn’t feel like it’s really happening. It’s a little …

    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 …
