Just a perfect afternoon in Barcelona

14 Nov

Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon with my friend in the city center of Barcelona. He is local, though he lives in a neighbourhood, outside the city center. Everytime I go out I always get inspired by the city. Its people, its art, its arquitechture. Everytime I get more and more confident when I go out, walking on the streets of Barcelona. Everytime it makes me think of why I moved to Spain. And my eyes and my mind are the only witnesess.

Barcelona without any doubts, makes me feel free. Makes me want to live and fight for my dreams. (Emphasizing that I´m still looking for a job). And I guess I just need to see something else than my apartment. (Honestly, it´s the most boring apartment you probably can imagine).

The afternoon were just perfect yesterday. Though I actually got lost and unfortunately I entered the Raval. Just saying that the Raval is my less preferred barrio of Barcelona. And then I always have this ability to meet people on the street who are trying to sell me something or get me into something. I have learned to make it more meaningful for me: I just spent those 5-10 min. to learn how to have a conversation with a Spaniard. And everytime I say, in Spanish that I don´t understand them, they always manage me to keep talking.

After a warm summer, which I spent pretty much on the beach,  it´s finally autumn. And they have gone so far that they´re preparing for christmas. The leaves have changed their colour, soon the trees will be naked. I can´t stop smiling with the thought of the arrival of 2013. 2012 has been a great year for me, and nothing makes me happier than the thought of ending it in Barcelona!

So, I actually wanted to go straight out taking tons of photos today, but I thought that it was better to stay home. They are making another strike! Well it is happening almost at least once at month in Spain. I just watched the news. I´m glad that I made the decision to stay home..
