This morning I started off with an orientation at Pompeu Fabra University. The school is absolutely gorgeous and only minutes from the beach. I met a few people going through the same program and were together with them throughout the entire day. We were taken on a short tour of the University; later on we had lunch by the beach.
Where we had lunch!
In Spain, lunch is their biggest meal.
Afterwards, a CEA (program) guide took us on a tour through the old city of Barcelona. Everything is gorgeous here. From the streets to the buildings, the architecture is unreal. Here are a few photos from today's tour of the city:
My wonderful new group of friends
A panoramic view of the inner harbor (love my new camera!)
An extremely large post office
A colorful sculpture representing the artists of Spain
Typical street in Barcelona
During the holidays, a Nativity Scene is put up for everyone to see
Quite peculiar, but it is supposed to remind us that they were human too
Castle: home of Isabella & Ferdinand: King and Queen who united Spain in the 1400s
That's a quick tour through the old town.
Tomorrow everything will be closed since it's a holiday.
I will be sightseeing...more pictures! Thanks for reading!
Besitos, Lilly Goti
