Today was the day that everyone else from wku left, and I stayed behind in Spain. Although I'm missing graduation, I couldn't be more excited to travel with my mom through Spain and Italy. She arrived this morning, and we began exploring right away. I took her to Park Guell and we got to go inside to see the beautiful mosaic work. Even though I had visited this park previously, I had not yet seen the mosaics, and they were beautiful. We then experienced a little bit of the city center before heading back to the hotel. I also had the opportunity to introduce her to my host family throughout this experience. The kids all greeted her with kisses, and we had a wonderful conversation with my host mom. As we were leaving, I had to tell my family for the past 3 weeks goodbye. It was sad to leave as the kids told me they will miss me and that they hope to see me again in the future. It got me thinking that I really would love to make it back to this beautiful city some day. Tomorrow my mom and I will go to the Sangrada Familia which is a huge cathedral here. I have not yet gotten to see it, and I am very excited!!
