So I left Llavaneras to spend my last few nights experiencing the true Barcelona nightlife with my friends in some of our favorite clubs. It was a very appropriate way to go out, except for the absurd behavior of Tony, our 30-something Pakistani bartender friend who is actually going crazy dealing with my departure. Tony, the king of Spanglish, said to me, "If you go, you will break my corazón. And I will not trabajar ever again. I will just dormir because I can't live without my princesa.
My last night in Barcelona was el Día de Sant Joan, in which everyone stays up all night and parties on the beach sets off fireworks. Except it's not quite like Independence Day in the US because people set off their own, individual fireworks and it's fun, but just one big dangerous mess, what with screaming children and explosives everywhere. Go figure. So despite the danger, my friends and I stayed on the beach until I left around 4 am to go get my bags, say goodbye to Betty (she told me to wake her to say goodbye) and head over to the airport for my 7 am flight. (Needless to say, I slept for about 14 hours straight when I arrived home.)
So with that, I was ready to go home.
Aside from the fact that I will miss Betty and my friends and some aspects of Spanish culture immensely, I was ready to be home. I've learned this past semester that travelling the world is extremely important to me, but after all is said and done, there's no place like home.
