"El gran sabor de los pequeñas cosas"

the great taste of the little things :)

So i just realized that the captions i created for my past pictures don't show up on my blog so from now on i'll try to give a little explanation with each picture!

beautiful barcelona architecture

beautiful barcelona architecture

This is just a taste of what I see walking around barcelona on a daily basis. The majority of the buildings are just so beautiful, with such style!

Vida con mi madre de acogida (life with my host mom) just gets better everyday. We don't see each other most of the day, but I enjoy spending some time with her when we are all home, and I've begun asking some questions about her and her family. Todos las noches (everynight) she cooks dinner for kristina and I, and we've started a little tradition of watching a Spanish game show 'Pasapalabra' every night during dinner! Fun!

Yesterday a few of my friends and I climbed the hill of Montjuic, which is a part of Barcelona filled with tons of Jewish history, plus it was the site of the 1992 Olympics. It made for some beautiful views of the city, and it was very cool to see the Olympic Stadium. The pictures I've included show the olympic stadium as well as a view of the outside!

I went exploring down to la Barceloneta, and got some delicious focaccia with Catalan sausage. ps catalan sausage is delicious! DSCN0537.jpgOn the way there we passed through a section of Las Ramblas with some incredible artwork, all being created right there on the street in front of us. Here is one little collection that I loved for its bright colors! DSCN0532.jpg

So there are just tons of awesome restaurants and and stuff going on down at la Barceloneta but my favorite thing above all was the street musicians! There were so many awesome soloists and groups with such flair! I've included a little video of one of my favorites. This group had really cool drums and a cello {how interesting!} and some other cool instruments, and their singer was so unique! Loved it! I just sat and watched a few groups! (haha one time I almost got up to salsa with the guy cause he was trying to get this other girl to dance who just wasn't quite cutting it! Next time!)

More to come! I am going to try paella tonight! can't wait!
