from the land of Barca part 1

from the land of barca...
first of all...and to freak out my mum if she's reading this, my first time on the metro, some idiot tried to pick pocket me...they where not aware of my fast reflexes and sensitive spacial awareness...any way that failed...
moving on!
got to the hostel and at first, i'll admit, got scared, the place does not look appealing from out side, but i'm telling you, i love it. it's super relaxed, and you do what you want...table tennis, wii, scrabble, chess, play giutare, read in a hammock, anything...
anyway...out to lunch and relaxin around, and as we where considering going to bed, we met two people we had met earlier, a south african and a Californian and two other people,, Canadian, who where going out for a beer...so why not? and off we went, it's really easy to make friends here, and i'm trying my best to socialize with anyone english speaking...
the five of us are sharing a room with another girl, and a woman and her son (although the mum and son leave tomorrow)
this morning after breakfast we made our was to the centre again, really getting used to the transport system here... they make it easy, it's super efficient.
i survived!
i survived over two hours of shopping in a market! the girls got tired before i gave in!
woot
then it was off to a quick lunch at a random sandwich place and to park de la ciutadelle.... i think, its spelt like that anyway...
it was very nice...a very nice fountain monument thing....with obviously, people swimming in it

whats funny is that whenever you here someone speaking english, it's like a breath of fresh air...we've had conversations, besides with the 4 people mentioned earlier, with some one irish and some one from i dont know where,.....he's a drummer. lol

last things:
bernice to me while traveling on the tram "m'hawnx hafna toqob imma ux"...
"we're on tracks ber"

and sarah is adicted to facebook....she denies it, but we know its true...

later going to shop to cook pasta here...we have the use of a kitchen :)
