Carnaval in Europe is crazy! It is the time right before Lent starts, so all of Europe goes crazy for a couple of days before they pray away their sins.
This weekend I went to Carnaval in Sitges, a popular beach town a half an hour south of Barcelona. Everyone dresses up, and the parade starts at 7 pm and lasts until 4 am!!!! (I only made it until 1 am, FYI) My friends and I met some really cool people from the Netherlands, and we watched the parade from the beach.
After three weeks of traveling, I finally got to spend a weekend in Barcelona. On Friday I went to the beautiful Costa Brava town on Palamos, where there I fileted a fish (I even had to cut off its head 😦 ). Yesterday, I went to the ancient Roman city of Tarragona, which is about an hour south of Barcelona. Both were amazing times that let me experience the culture of a more rural Spanish setting!
Thursday I went to a party thrown by my university, and there they had the cultural activity of castelles, which is where people build human towers. Google it, it is amazing! They had 5 rows of people and then they fell!!! Amazing.
Hope all is well in the USA. I see that it is about 60 degrees in Pittsburgh right now, so maybe global warming isn´t so bad LOL. If only our president believed in it! Everyone in Spain is so curious about he who must not be named. They think the Americans are a bunch of idiots LOL!!! I can´t say that the Spaniards´assessment is wrong, though.
Hasta nunca USA. I´m staying in Spain.
Yes, my phone was stolen unfortunately. Hence why I haven’t been able to upload blog posts (sorry about that)!!!! Pero, ahora esta bien. Let me fill you in on what’s been happening.
I went to Geneva last weekend to meet up with my mom’s cousin who lives there and my sister, who is currently working in Zurich. It was very very very beautiful and I encourage all to go and see the beauty that is Switzerland. The food and wine were amazing, and I especially recommend the fondue!
Next, I visited my friend who is studying abroad in Florence. I want to say that I could live in Italy for my entire life, but I would get too fat because the food is that good! 😦 For three days I exclusively ate pizza, pasta, and gelato. It was amazing.
And all is well here in Barcelona! I watch the news and never want to go back to the United States! Hope you are all doing well.
