Today we spent our afternoon touring Barcelona! It was beautiful! We bought tickets for a Bus Tour, and we spent the whole afternoon driving around Barcelona seeing sites and listening to the audio that explained it all. There is so much history and great architecture in Barcelona. While on the tour, some of the sites we saw were Placa de Catalunya, Casa Batllo (by Guadi), La Pedrera(by Gaudi), La Sagrada Familia, Monestir de Pedralbes (Monastery for the nuns of the Order of Saint Clare), Palau Reial (a royal palace by Guadi),Estacio de Sants, the 1992 Olympic site, World Trade center, the Christopher Columbus statue, the Port and the Mediterranean Sea, and a few other sites. We hope to return to some of our favorite sites in the next few weeks so that we can learn more about them and get better pictures!

After touring, we stopped for Gelato. This was my first Gelato experience, and I think I may have found a new favorite dessert! Afterwards, we headed home.

Tomorrow we are back to school, but I must say it was a wonderful weekend in Barcelona!
