The weather is perfect in Barcelona! For the past couple of days, I have been checking out the student accommodations (the Melon District), making sure our classroom is in order, purchasing tour tickets and selecting a location for our first dinner. And tomorrow I’ll spend time at the airport greeting the students as they arrive.
For that first dinner, we’ll be enjoying Catalan cuisine, mostly tapas, in a little neighborhood cafe near the most famous street in Barcelona, La Rambla.
Each day students will be posting to this official class blog. I’ll take a turn first and post comments and photos after our dinner Sunday night and then hand it over to the students at our first class meeting on Monday.
Check back every week day to see what the students are discovering in this busy coastal city.
