What a busy weekend this has been! After school on Friday we went to the city center again. We ate at a Mexican restaraunt and shopped around a little bit. We also saw a beautiful church and the street with many famous designer stores. It was fun exploring the city! On Saturday, I went to the beach. It was so pretty! We ate lunch and relaxed on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea! The sand here is much more coarse than any sand I've ever seen before, and there were so many people trying to sell stuff as you sat on the beach. Vendors were constantly approaching us which became a little frustrating after a while. We then met some friends in the city center for dinner. Today was a busy day also! We started early this morning by finding Park Guell. It is a beautiful place with great views of the city and many mosaics. The hike up to the hill was an experience! The hill was so steep they had built escalators in the middle of the road to assist you frequently. Once we finally got to the top, we entered the park and could see the whole city of Barcelona! We walked up and down the huge park and saw some pretty sites. We then ate lunch before leaving the area. After lunch we headed back to the city center and walked down La Ramblas. There were many shops and we even saw some human statues! At the bottom of the street was a port and a huge statue of Christopher Columbus. After seeing this we headed up to the very top of the mountain to Tibidabo. We took a cable car halfway and another cabled train the rest of the way. The view at the top was breathtaking. We could see the entire city and there was a beautiful church at the top. We went inside and walked all around outside while taking plenty of pictures! We walked back down the mountain, and finally made it home. It has been a very tiring but exciting weekend!
