Barcelona, Spain

The Spanish.  Food.  Energy.  Social circles and networks.  Fun.

City centre

Major sites/recommendations

  • Sagrada Familia
  • The beach

Favorite part(s)

Getting to tour the stadium, and behind-the-scenes of the FC Barcelona Football/Soccer club.  Absolutely once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  Taking part in my first-ever legal protest – and even more special as was in a foreign (to me) country.
