In the cloister of the cathedral

En el claustro de la catedral, uno de mis rincones favoritos, me gusta compartir con mis estudiantes lo misterioso y bello de este pequeño espacio lleno de símbolos, como por ejemplo las trece ocas que corretean por allí y que representan los trece años que tenía Santa Eulàlia, primera patrona de la ciudad, al morir.

Pasarán los años y espero que los de El Casal siempre conserven la foto del grupo que hacemos en una de las primeras visitas de los viernes, explorando Barcelona.Hace 8 años que hice esta foto, los mismos años que tiene nuestra corta pero intensa historia de El Casal, nuestro gap year en Barcelona.

Barça, Barça, Barça!!!!

Justin can’t believe he finally made it to an FC Barcelona game!

You soccer (or “fútbol”) addicts out there already know that the Barcelona Football Club is dominating the Spanish League this season, recovering the ground lost to Real Madrid, last season’s league champion.

Barça is arguably the best club team in the world and has held that honor for the last couple of seasons, thanks to the incredible talents of Leo Messi and South African World Cup hero Andrés Iniesta, among other outstanding players.

Every major victory by the team is celebrated in the streets--particularly along the Ramblas, Barcelona’s most well-known thoroughfare—and Barça’s string of victories means that the party never stops.
