Monday we went on a class trip to Girona. It was an hour train ride and we were so close to France. Girona is a small town that has a river flowing right through it. It has a nice cathedral and a wall built around part of the city. We spent all day there, and it was a nice break from the craziness of Barcelona. Tuesday we went to the Sagrada Familia or “Holy Family”. It was breathtaking. We ran into the celebrity Ian Somerhalden from Lost/ Vampire Diaries. It was cool since I’ve never seen a celebrity before. We we also able to take an elevator to the top of the Sagrada and walked around. We were lucky because about an hour after we left, someone set a fire in the Crypt of the building. Luckily, there was no damage but it was too close for comfort. Later, we went to another riot which turned ugly in a few hours. Wednesday was our last day in Barcelona. I did a little shopping and headed to the beach for the day. We weren’t allowed to leave our apartment that night because of the violence from the riot. Thursday we woke up around 6:00 am and headed home. It was a long day. I was sad to see the trip come to an end, but had an absolutely amazing time. I know I will never forget it.
