I smell like a European.

Yes, it’s true. I´ve braved hostel showers, leaky faucets and though it hasn’t been that hot, but I think it comes with the territory. Our days have been so packed, I haven’t much time to even get to a locutorio!!

Things here are fantastic. A brief recap of what we´ve done in the last 12 days…
GRANADA: capilla real. catedral. albacin. fantastic dinner.
SEVILLA: catedral, alcazar and giralda, plaza de toros de la real maestrezana. museo de baile del flamenco. plaza de espana. fútbol club sevilla match (INSANE I loved it…they won 4-1, too). met my amazing German roommate. dinners from pan y co to the fancy la juderia and la habanita.
GIBRALTAR: the rock. the barbary apes. old towne.
CORDOBA: la mezquita. casco antiguo. plaza las tenillas.
LISBOA: castello san jorge. bairro alto. cemetario dos prazeres. se. capilla san antoini. earthquake museum. fado. i also went out here with some canadians and had a crazzzzy time! lots of seafood. lots of getting lost and climbing hills. bullfight with spared bulls.
SINTRA: crazy bus rides. castello dos muoros. quinta la regalia. casta pena. GORGEOUS.
BARCELONA: festival de merce means parades, music and a wine festival. sagrada familia. parc guell. la pedrera. manzana de discordancia. colon. bosq en les facades. rugby tuorney. city histroy museum. montjuic. fundacion miro. national art museum. castello montjuic. parc de la cuitadella. musee picasso.
