Spain – Day 8

IMG_0019

Barcelona is so different than Majorca.  We went from island time to big, congested city.  I had no idea my friend was such a “planner”.  We got off the plane and hit the ground running!  She had every moment planned.  It was exhausting.  HELP ME!

My friend all proud of her organizational skills!

We did a tour of the amazing Sagrada Familia unfinished cathedral.  It is just beautiful and it cannot ever be finished in my lifetime.  That took about 2 hours.

We then spent the next 5 hours riding around Barcelona in a “Double-Decker” bus.  At one point I was nodding out and falling asleep in my seat.  My friend’s response to this was to make me get a cup of really strong coffee and we pressed on.

We did not even eat dinner until 8pm.  I am an early diner, I hate having a full belly at bedtime.

We have a hammock in the middle of our apartment! 

When we finally got back to the apartment, showered, and got to hash out a few things we were in tears laughing at how funny the whole thing was.  She promises to go easier on me but I doubt it.  She is hilarious and full of desire to see everything she can in the next few days and I am going to try to keep up.  The bike rides were easier.

 

She is also bringing this silly little bobble-head of Chef Bartolino (Dallas) with us everywhere and getting pictures of it in front of everything.  Very funny!

I cannot wait to tell you about the shenanigans she has planned for tomorrow.  After I heard the words “metro-to-train-to-aerial cable car”, I went into a brain coma.
