I'm so glad to say I survived the plane ride and made it to Barcelona. The city is beautiful, but I am so overwhelmed. My mom just dropped me off at my home for the next three weeks and now it's up to me to walk back to school alone in an hour... I'm so nervous about finding my way through the city! On our walk home, my mom kept warning me about people who were staring because they could tell I'm not from here. The house is so pretty, but is it very small. They also have a housekeeper who speaks no English. It will be interesting trying to communicate with her while I am home alone! Most of all, I am so tired. It's all I can to keep my eyes open as I type this. Bedtime tonight cannot come soon enough, and I hope this jetlag goes away soon!
