Everyone from our school gathered down by where the ducks were again to bid farewell. One kid decided it would be a good idea to put some bread on a stick and try to feed the ducks. Of course, the ducks were terrified (even the beast one) of the stick and went for the bread once it fell off (which was inevitable).
The bus ride into Spain didn't take a long time. I slept for most of the ride, but what scenery I saw continued with the European beauty. We went to the Salvador Dali Museum (if you don't know who he is, it's the melting clock pictures) and wandered through that for quite a while before getting a lunch. This was my first run-in with the Spanish language away from home.
I managed to order quite well in Spanish, but had to help a French student, who flat-out refused to try and speak any Spanish, versus myself, the French failure, who was able to say "Je voudre" and point and say an occasional word.
We wandered through the shops for a little while, and I picked up a few souvenirs for my siblings before it was back onto the bus. We drove into Barcelona and to our hotel. The bus couldn't fit through the streets (Take that, Julia!!), so we got to walk up cobblestone streets...woooo!! Not really. We were tired. After finally depositing our suitcases, we got some free time to walk around the city until dinner.
A few of us found a cute boutique with adorable clothes, though I didn't buy anything. We went back to dinner only to find a few kids from our school drunk as hell. One girl wasn't quite drunk, more tipsy (she could still function normally, and her words weren't slurred), but one of the boys was flat-out drunk (we have video of him talking to a butterfly).
The next day, we slept for the entire tour and blew what many we had left on food. And there was a fortune teller!!
