Greetings from Madrid! I've finally arrived after 10 days of travel. My program through Syracuse University had an introductory "Study Tour" that allowed us to travel in a group of about 30 to visit several villages and larger cities. Within this group I also had to find a potential roommate for the host family situation. That was slightly scary but I met a very nice chica- Gabby- and we get along very nicely. So, on the tour we visited:
- Roses a fantastic beach village (above)
- Teatro-Museo Dali
- the Monastery of San Pedro de Rodas
- the fantastic town of Gerona where we saw a Judio Bonastruc and the Catedral de Gerona
- BARCELONA...my favorite place so far, so gorgeous and special
The Sagrada Familia...ok this was astounding and so incredibly beautiful
Park Guell: this is basically designed by Gaudi and is gorgeous!
Well, that's all for now folks...the trip has just begun and pictures are more to come!
