Lisa begins her week,
at the Gracia Metro station,
up the hill to school (photo courtesy of Julie Jackson),
to begin the first official week of orientation at BFIS (photo courtesy of Julie Jackson).
Festa de Gracia continues…
the crowds grow,
by day …
and night, often until 5 am = Mary and Lisa get little sleep.
The work week wraps up with a send off to a new friend, Melissa,
on her way around the world via bike. BFIS’ loss will be Oregon’s gain.
Beautiful women everywhere.
Lisa’s ends Friday with an adventure to CREARTE salon, touching up both her hair and her Spanish.
Saturday Las Chicas adventure by train to Sant Pol de Mar,
with fellow teachers from BFIS,
and return in time to watch the Red Hook Fixed Gear Crit, Barcelona.
Mary shows off Official Press Pass used at race.
Las Chicas wrap it up with a Sunday ride along the beachfront bike path,
and take in more fun art. Return to Gracia to find a Sunday afternoon swing dance in progress. (click on link to see video).
