Time to start saying goodbye to Barcelona

I kind of realized today that I don't really have much time left in Barcelona and after 3 months there is still lots I haven't seen. When I come back from Portugal and Paris, I will only have about 36 hours left to see everything so I had to take a good walk today along the port area. I was suprised by the length of the beach which ends up being a mile long which was kind of crowded despite the fact that it was only about 70 degrees. Filled with English speaking tourists and a strong odor of pot....I can only imagine what it is like when it is 90 degrees out.
The city was a nice home for three months. Despite the fact in the first two weeks two of the seven Michigan students got their wallets stolen, the rest of managed to keep ours over the following 10 weeks.
In the end it is the people who make the place what it is and the fellow exchange students and the students at IESE were great. Friendly and ambitious to see and experience the city. The amount of diversity in the class room and also in social events was unparalled. I expect that while I have just as strong a network from IESE as I will from Michigan. In addition, with still 10 days left in Europe I have close to 800 pictures, but I am nearly 10 pounds lighter than when I came.
