I am listening to Pete's Dragon while typing typing this post and it is such a cute and good movie! That is a good movie. I told my sister to be my candle on the water. If you know the movie then you know what I am talking about but if you haven't you should watch it! But I'll try to give it the best shot at it, the Nora watches the lighthouse to direct the ships back to the coast and she is going to be the steady rock for Pete. So my sister is going to be my rock and be the person I can cry, complain to. Its a good study break.
This week was pretty blah, I had two tests this week and a project due and it kind of took over my life. I spent alot of time studying for it and yeah. Blah. Well its not going to get easier. I have alot of small projects due this week. But we are talking about last week so on with the story.
My senora bought croissants and so I now I can just put nutella on them and feel better about myself so I don't have to go and buy them =). They are not the same as the chocolate croissants but they hit the spot. I tried a new place for lunch and it was the best thing I have had in a long time and it was spicy too! I am going to have to resensitize myself to spicy foods when I get home because it is non existent here, well none that I can find. Friday we had a Conocer Barcelona and it was to see the markets of Spain, I would have thought more than one more but we only saw one. It was a great learning experience to show how shopping in America is different than shopping in Spain. There are no Wal-Mart, K-Marts, Aldis, or Walgreens here so you have to go to these markets or there are some chain supermarkets but you go these markets and you get food. They have everything from butchers, fisheries, vegetables, fruits, and candies and you just get your food there. Nothing is prepackaged all fresh trust me they were filleting the fish right in front of you. It's kinda of stinky and culture shocking! Well Friday night we had reservations for the Barcelona Ice Bar and it was super cold! It was -14 degree Celsius. The walls and furniture is made of ice. They had sculptures and a bar of ice. For 15 euros you got a coat, gloves, a drink, and unlimited time in the ice bar. I don't drink so it was fun ordering at the bar because well they allow children in but all the bartenders laugh at me for ordering a nonalcoholic drink! So I asked him what he had without alcohol and he said juice so I had an apple juice at the ice bar in Barcelona in a ice cup. It was so good!
Saturday I spent the whole day in the library. I finally sucked it up and figured out how to get a library card so that I can access the wi-fi. It wasn't so hard but it was fun to talk because they were talking me to in Catalan! Then they gave the information for the library in Catalan. Not really helpful but I can get the information on the website. Oh I forgot to mention that the closest library to me is by the Sagrada Familia! So I have to walk past it when I go! Also my library card can be used at any library in Barcelona so that's cool.
I went to church today! Finally after being sick as a dog, I was able to go. There were different people there this week. A sister picked me off the metro and asked me if I was going to church and I said yes and we had a nice conversation to church and all in Spanish!!!!! My teacher made me say the prayer but she said I could do it in English, good thing because I don't think I could do it in Spanish I am not that good. I meet a girl and and she said she is interested in learning more English and I want to learn more Spanish so I think I found and intercambio partner!!! More Spanish! So I get on the metro and then on the next few stops a guy and his brother came on the metro and the brother sat next to me. I offered the guy my seat and he said no and I said hi to the brother and he gave me kiss on the cheek. I'm counting that as my first kiss =), in Spain breaking hearts.
