Where to start…

September 4, 2011

I tried so hard to update frequently, but sometimes it’s just not possible. And even though I’ve been really busy doing fun things and taking lots of pictures, I don’t have time to recount it all. So here’s a (hopefully) brief rundown.

In the last 3 days I have:

  • Been to Parc Güell (Gaudí’s famous park), which was a lot prettier than I had expected.
  • Walked around the city one heck of a lot.
  • Hung out with friends a lot, with and without alcoholic presence.
  • Seen the newest Pedro Almodóvar film–La Piel que Habito (mind-blowingly strange, in classic Almodóvar fashion).
  • Bought a semi-expensive but really fun dress from a famous Spanish clothing store (Desigual).
  • Been on a tour of Codorniu–one of the famous Spanish Cava factories.
  • Tasted delicious Cava (the Spanish version of Champagne) at said factory.
  • Walked around Sitges for a good hour and a half on an unproductive search for churros that ended in crepes instead (still delicious).
  • Been to the beach at Sitges–SO BEAUTIFUL.
  • Been to two museums: The Museum of Music (which was cool but less than impressive) and the National Museum of Catalan Art (which was definitely awesome).
  • Had a semi-insane “Ukrainian” waitress.
  • Skype-dated with my good friend Sarah.

So that’s why I haven’t posted in 3 days. Also, I have a lot of schoolwork coming up, since this coming week is the last week of our “curso intensivo” and so I have a paper, a presentation, and a final exam. So that’s why I can’t spend a lot of time elaborating what went down.

But, don’t worry (in case you were). I’m definitely alive and enjoying myself here in Barcelona.

  2. Crepes! yum. I love crepes and there aren’t any in Augusta County. I just looked up the imdb for that Almodovar movie… holy shit. But I wanna see it. Antonio, oh Antonio. I want to see it; hooooow do I see it. Man, all that sight seeing sounds awesome! I hope you are having so much fun and getting well adjusted and not too stressed. I am now going to comment on the rest of your posts, because I am awesome.

  3. I added the movie to my netflix saved queue. So when it comes out, bizarre Spanish movie to meeee!


    • Definitely! Hopefully it will come to Netflix. Otherwise, I might just buy it and lend it to you. I need to start an Almodovar DVD collection.


  4. Have you seen the Almodovar movie Matador?


    • Yes I have! Have you?
