Today was our first day in Barcelona Spain!  We flew Ryan Air from Manchester to Girona, one hour north of Barcelona.  When we first stepped outside the weather was perfect.  It’s around 29 C, 84 F, no humidity, no clouds.  All sun.  Getting around was difficult at first, as not many people older than us speak English, but due to the weather that was no problem.  We could not understand the tube so we walked from the bus station to our hostel.  Barcelona has the attitude of St. Petersburg/ Clearwater, Florida; the weather is nice, open the windows, get outside, enjoy the day.  Barcelona has wide boulevards friendly to pedestrians.  Tomorrow is a national strike day, as dictated by Spain’s two largest unions.  In light of such news, we will be seeing the sights outside.
