Barcelona's central park, Parc de la Ciutadella, is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. As today is the last official day of spring break, we went there to relax before classes start. The sun was shining (despite a forecast for rain), couples were making out, and vendors were quietly attempting to sell visitors beer cans kept in plastic bags. Ok, it' s actually a lot classier than I just made that sound.
Yesterday we visited Parc Güell, which was designed by Gaudi. It was also really beautiful, but a bit crowded. Part of the park overlooks the entire city. The map I have doesn't really convey how expansive Barcelona is, so it was really cool (and a tad overwhelming) to see the city from above.
Anyway. Tomorrow we move into student housing! Hopefully it's as awesome as their website claims.
