With three red heads, two boys in matching soccer jerseys, and a teacher leading us that is just south of 5 feet, we’re an easy group to spot in a crowd. But after a solid week, I’d like to think that we’re slowly learning the lay of the land here in the amazing city of Barcelona and have moved up the ranks from tourists, to locals in training.
We can all finally navigate our way safely, in and out of the metro without losing any valuable limbs in closing doors or escalators. And we’ve been able to discover a lot of the hidden perks Spain’s public transportation has to offer. “I don’t need a blow dryer, I have the metro.” – Alanna.
Everyone has made a valuable effort to fit in style-wise, and have purchased clothing from some of the local shops. “You guys we have to stop at this store. It says it has the freshest s*** in Barcelona!” – John K.
And, we’ve learned that huge fishes, are huge at L’aquarium de Barcelona. “Look at that huuuuge fish! It’s a fish, but it’s huuuuge!” – Laura E.
