la sagrada familia

So we were a bit tired today so we had a late start...I seem to say that a lot. But anywho, we met a couple of the Australian guys from last night and had some lunch. We sat on Las Rambla and had a drink. They had a beer that cost 10 euros! Thats insane for one beer. We sat there for a while before and then we went to see the hostel they were staying at. It was A LOT nicer than ours, it seemed like a hotel! It was awesome. I was jealous.

Lori and I then decided to go see some sights. Or one sight. We took the metro to La Sagrada Familia station to see it. It was huge! It was so interesting looking, I loved it. We walked around for a bit and took some photos before going around to the entrance. It's such a strange building, definitely a must-see. We went inside and got in line to head to the top.

The lineup was really long but it didn't take that long. We went up there and walked around for a bit before heading back down.

Then we took the train back to Las Ramblas. We walked down it for a while and went into some stores. The street performers there are insane! There are so many, its crazy and they're all so intricate and fun to watch. Then we went back to our hostel to our seperate rooms. There I met a big group of girls from the states. There were also 2 really nice Australian girls I talked to for a bit. We decided to meet them later at the travel bar. Lori and I went there for dinner, it was really good. If you go there at a certain time you get a meal for 1 euro. Our meals were a bit more expensive...like 4 or 5 euros each. But they were really good.

Then the people we were with decided to go on this party bus type thing. So we went too, it was so strange because I've been on a party bus at home and it was so not like that at all. It was like an actual bus. It took us to different bars and clubs. We had a lot of fun, we met some more awesome people there too. We didn't end up getting back to our hostel until like 7am..
