  • This story is from a series my study abroad experience in Barcelona, Spain

    The center of the Roman town would have been a forum, which a few columns are still here and preserved (and closed for viewing). The site today, in Barcelona, is the city square that is flanked by the Mayor of Barcelona on one side and the President of Catalunya on the other. The highlight (for me) at the square was a little cafe whose bocadillos were fantastic, and warm (although the day was the nicest day yet, still colder then normal for the city but that's another story).

    After being released, we walked around the old city, taking small alley ways and discovering new plazas all over the city. The detail of the city, from the tiles of the sidewalk and plazas to the lamp posts were incredible. We were told that it was the city celebrating the handiwork of one of it's most revered citizens, Antoni Gaudí.

    The day's adventures ended with a peaceful session of kite flying which proved very unsuccessful without the whole wind thing, oh well, I've time to try again.
