Padres

I am definitely updating this very late, but my parents came to Barcelona for a week! Wooohoo!

But it was a blast. For someone who has always been shown up by her well-traveled, multi-cultured parents, I finally got to show them a part of the world that they haven’t seen.

The first day, we went to Montjuic. At the base of Monjuic is the “Palace” which is now an art museum. Dad got a little frisky:

Then the 1992 Olympic stadium:
 We then went to the top of Montjuic to the old fort:

And finally, off to “La Fuente Magica” for the light show!
 The next day was “Gaudi day”, where we visited various Gaudi buildings, such as Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, La Sagrada Familia, and Park Guell.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday we visited my church here, then took a day trip to Tarragona, which is a beautiful beach town with an old Roman coliseum resides:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rest of the week, we visited various sights like the beach, plaza Espanya and Catalunya, other parks, and of course my school seen here:

 

All in all, I was extremely blessed to have my parents visit me while I was here. Next time I’ll see them, there’ll be chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
