Barcelona so far (after 14 hours) May 18, 2010

We landed at 9AM and started the luggage-dragging frenzy of getting from the airport to our residences.

Barcelona leaves me in awe.  We were able to witness some of it on the bus ride to our dorms, and a little bit after we had checked in and dropped off some of our belongings in our rooms.  We walked around for almost 3 hours, and at this time we had not had anything to eat for about 9 hours, so a group of friends and I ran to the nearest market to stock up on food.

Afterwards, the group decided to try and get phones with me as a translator, and we ran into another group of people attempting to get phones as well.  We ended up getting phones for 11 people and then headed to a tapas place, since it had now been over 11 hours since any food had been in our system.

I tried jamon de bellota, which allows me to cross out two things off my BCN To-Do List: that, and tapas.

Now for some randomly stellar quotes throughout the day:

“Hi, they want cellphones” me upon entering a Vorafone store flanked by 12 fellow BCN students.
