First of all, I thought I would make this post easier on you guys. Not only will it be in English but I was informed that you’d like more pictures so this one is going to be more of a mini photo album with captions but not a whole lot of writing. If there’s something specific that I didn’t mention that you’d like to know, ask away and I’ll do my best to answer.
Here’s a bit of a summary: Last weekend, at the last minute (about 4 hours before the train was scheduled to leave), my friend and I decided to go to Granada for the weekend. We also decided it would be way cooler if we traveled by night train and rented compartments and beds. So we left Thursday night, slept on the train and arrived Friday morning. Most of that day was dedicated to exploring La Alhambra and later in the afternoon we walked around the main town for a bit. The next day we explored the Albaicín (the old Arab quarter), tried to find the Arab baths, and searched around and went inside as many churches as we could, with great results. That night we left via the night train again and arrived back at Barcelona on Sunday morning. Here are the pictures:
There are plenty more pictures but it would be a little ridiculous to put them all on the blog. If you want i could set up a flickr account for these and many more from Spain, just let me know.
I am from Cincinnati, Ohio and attend The Ohio State University where I study Linguistics and Spanish. I decided to study in Barcelona because I was really excited about the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city combined with the classic Spanish culture. Also, the close proximity to the Pyrenees Mountains was very appealing to me because I plan on visiting that area at least once. I am partnering with Anderson High School in Ohio because I went there and I still have very good connections with the Spanish department as my mom is a Spanish teacher. As a result it will be very easy to set up the blog corresponding to the syllabus of the students. I hope to, through the blog, record my most memorable experiences here in Spain along with the normal day-to-day life I will live. Also, I want to share my experiences with my family and friends and with other Spanish students who may be inspired to also study abroad and explore Spain and Spanish culture.
