i sit now in my room. its so quiet and peaceful... completely 180 from the way life has been the past few days.
since wednesday night, it has been nonstop fun. this weekend has been the Mercé celebration here in the city. Mercé is apparently the patron saint of barcelona, and her saints day was on thursday. it basically is another excuse for this city to
party just a little harder. this weekend has been stuffed to the brim with parades, street shows, flea markets, free concerts, fire runs, human castles, wine tasting, etc. the free concerts have definitely been the most fun. i got to see the go! team, the hives an
d cat people all for free. i was super jazzed to see the dirty projectors... but they canceled! worst ever...
red team. ftw.
today, im planning on heading down for the final day of the celebration. i have some wine tasting coupons left, so ill be sure to put those to use. mom, dont worry, im writing down the ones that i like so we can look for them later. also, there is some more of the Castells (human castles) and some traditional catalan dance stuff going on a bit later. and the weekend closes with a big music and fireworks show down by the magic fountains... needless to say, it should be a good end to a 4 day weekend.
well, i am going to go meet amanda in the park next to our houses, for some reading and writing and thinking time... how lucky i am to have a friend like that!
over and out.
