After a long trip through Chicago and London I have managed to arrive in Barcelona and make it to my apartment. I arrived five hours late because of a delay in Chicago which caused me to miss my flight to Barcelona, but not too bad considering the route. Now if my piece of luggage would just arrive all would be good. The weather seems a bit disappointing with not much view of the sun and plenty of cold weather, but I am sure that will improve.
I have settled into my new home for the next three months. I have three roommates on the seventh floor of a four bedroom apartment. One of my roommates (Yesh from Bangalore, India) is a student at another business school in Barcelona while Raheel (from Lahore, Pakistan) and Namesh (from Bangalore, India) are both first year business students at IESE.
IESE is the school I will be studying at and is ranked as #1 in the world by some periodicals (and as as #3 is Spain by others). IESE stands for "Instituto de Estudios Superiores de la Empresa" in Spanish and in English: "Institute of Higher Business Studies". It is an initiative of Opus Dei so there is a crucifix and statue of Mary in every classroom, but I haven't heard a mention of God or christianity yet.
That is it for now.
