When I got back to the states July of 2010 after spending nearly a year in Madrid, people couldn't believe that I never made it to Barcelona. I traveled around nearly everywhere else in Spain, but never to that city.
After living in Madrid for another eight months, I'm finally going.
Today I'm going to Barcelona, and I''ll get back to Madrid Tuesday night. (We have a puente this weekend; no classes Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday)
I think I'll find that Barcelona was well worth the wait.
Have a good weekend everyone!
