My apartment is located in the Gracia district of Barcelona. Its a younger, hipper, and more residential area of Barcelona. The apartment is definitely more modern that I expected, but I have no complaints so far.
Everything seems good so far and I am excited about spending the next three months in Barcelona. I think there are a total of 50 MBA exchange students from different programs all over. Everyone seems excited about being in Barcelona and exploring the city. I think its going to be fun.
So my Spanish is definitely not at the level that I thought it was. I took Spanish for two years in high school, but that was ages ago. So I am planning to take a spanish class at ESADE and look into language exchange here as well. The good thing is that many people speak English so if I am unable to speak in Spanish, I can use English.
I had my first dinner tonight at a restaurant in Gracia, Pomarada. I had a chance to try sangria and it was amazing! The food was also very delicious. Though it wasn't a typical Spanish restaurant, I will have plenty of opporunities to explore those while I am here.
