My study abroad program CIEE (CIEE: You're the King of the World) warned me that Barcelona was located in Europe, home to strange things such as Speedos and public transportation. While it's taken some time to get used to, I decided I'd try the European way of things and try to shower in the

In other business, I added some new pictures to the walking tour album. Let me know what you think!

In this post, we'll be closing with a MTV Cribs style salutation.
