Barcelona, Day One

Last week was my final week of Spanish classes, and, come Thursday — the final day. As I’ve already mentioned, I’m extremely happy I got an A, so Friday was a free day for us. Now that my group only has to focus on filming my teacher’s novel El Hijo de Hernandez, this weekend was basically our last free weekend. What to do? Three-day weekend in Barcelona? It’s on.

Located at the metro in Barcelona is possibly the world’s largest vending machine.

The Fira Nova Artisana, a huge street-flea market with all kinds of gifts like scarves, incense, jewelry, and leather goods!

We took our first day easy, since we had just arrived early that morning, and roamed around to the bay…

ImageImageImage

There were so many neat boats, modern and antique styled ones!

ImageImageImage

Not to mention all the seagulls

Hey, look, we can see ourselves! (on this giant mirror on top of the mall)

Stumbled across this Cuban band giving a free concert. They were so good!

The beach in Barcelona. The next day I learned these beaches are manmade, with sand from the Sahara Desert!

My first dinner there: fried salmon with salad and french fries!
