Barcelona Day 25.


Yesterday was a day full of new experiences. The first being kicked out of my room so the cleaning lady can come in and do her job. We had to leave so quickly that I didn’t even have time to brush my teeth or use the bathroom. With our blankets wrapping us in a cocoon, my roommate and I headed down to the lounge where we sat in our pajamas. Then after realizing neither of us had brought our room key with us, we ran back upstairs only to find our door locked. Thank goodness the cleaning lady was nice enough to let us in. Only 45 minutes until we had to leave, we both quickly got ready and ran out the door to our next new experience- La Sagrada Familia. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen anything more beautiful or breath taking than this church. Gaudi is an incredible architect, and I am in awe of the work he has created. Now when I pass it everyday on my way to school I’ll be even more amazed of its greatness. I don’t know if I’m more proud or embarrassed of what my friends and I did next.. Being the starved college students we are, we went to the buffet!! Now what I’ve noticed is that locals go to the buffet so they can have different options for their meal rather than go to a restaurant and get a single dish, but we, as American students, went to the buffet to fill our faces with as much food as our bodies would allow us. I think we sat there for about two hours getting seconds of both food and ice cream.. We showed those Spaniards how Americans do buffet! Now that our stomachs had reached maximum capacity, we decided to walk around and head over to our program office for my friend to pick some things up. As not exciting as this sounds, this still was a first for me! Though I wish my program was smaller- in order for me to get to know more people, I really love our program directors and how helpful they are with all of my questions! After bugging our director with a billion questions, my friends and I went to get a fish pedicure. Yes, I said fish pedicure. For those of you who don’t know what those are, or have not seen the Keeping up with the Kardashians episode of it, fish pedicures are when you place your feet into a tank of water where little fish eat away the dead skin on your feet. I’ll admit that I was quite squeamish with the feeling of fish sucking on my feet! But after 15 minutes of feeding fish with my feet, my feet were so soft! That pedicure was just what my feet needed after walking hours and hours all day for the past few weeks. The one thing that wasn’t my first experience yesterday was getting chocolate con churros! Cmon, how can one ever say no to chocolate con churros! But that was my whole day for you! It was a day filled with new sights, interesting experiences, and ended with my favorite Spanish dessert. From all my posts, it may seem like I’ve already seen much of Spain, but trust me, there is still so much more out there I need to discover! Adios!
