So today was the Spanish version of Fathers Day. No school, shops are closed, everyone hits the plazas and cafes to do whatever they want. Waking up at 1 p.m. from a mighty nap I got AA batteries from a Chino store (God bless the Chinese and their work ethic) so I could actually take pictures. I realized that I haven't even posted photos from my Barcelona trip. I haven't even posted picture from my Calle del Muertos.
In my defense this site takes forever to load pictures and everyone knows that time passes 1 1/3 times faster in Europe than in America. So don't blame me! I can't even format these pages, you'll just have to enjoy that random beach pic of me. It was taken in Cadiz, Spain before Carnivale. (Oh jeeze, I still have to post those)
I'm just going to put up a 'best of sample taste package'. This is me in front of the house of the guy who wrote Don Quixote, the same person I am conversing with in this picture.
Me training to be a Nun. This is in the town of Alcala, a lil' bit outside of Madrid.
A memorial to the Spanish Civil War way out in the mountains. There are something like 40,000 soldiers buried here at Valle de los Caidos.
Me at the monument. The entire place was shut down for construction but they let our tour in so we had the whole plaza to ourselves.
Alright this is the Sagrada Familia, a cathedral in Barcelona that has been under construction for over 100 years. It's the craziest building I have ever seen and I don't have a picture that could give it justice. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Barcelona.
This is on a dock in Barcelona looking out at the Mediterranean. This was my first time seeing the Sea, so it was pretty cool. Barcelona was just an awesome city all around - notice the short sleeves in March?
Alright it looks like I'm not allowed to upload any more pictures. I really do have a ton of pictures and I am sure that at some point in your life I will make you sit through a slide show of them all. I'll try to post more up later to at least finish my Barcelona trip.
