My Second Day in Barcelona
Okay, now its time to tell you all about my second day in Barcelona! Our day started off a little shaky - We ran into some rainy weather. Luckily Barcelona has a really great place to go when it is raining outside: The Aquarium!
The Barcelona Aquarium was an amazing place, filled with all types of aquatic life on display. There were so many different types of fish tanks to look at, it was a really fun time! The best part about the Barcelona Aquarium was that it has a big underwater glass tunnel, which visitors of the aquarium can walk through. It was such an amazing experience, being surrounded by water and all types of aquatic life on all sides. It was almost as if I was walking on the bottom of the ocean!
After the Aquarium we got to see The Barcelona Pavillion, which was designed by Mies van der Rohe. It was a beautiful structure and simple structure, exhibiting fine form, proportion and excellent craftsmanship. It is a one story pavilion, which is made using fine marble walls, and a flat roof with a long overhang. It was a great piece of architecture to see, and with an admission fee of only 2 euro for students, it was definitely worth the visit. Later on that night we got to try some Spanish food (not to be confused with Mexican food, I found that out the hard way). It was very unique, and absolutely delicious!
Unfortunately our second day in Barcelona got cut a llittle short due to rain, but we still made the most out of the trip! As always, here are some pictures from my adventures!
Thanks so much for checking out my blog, and look forward to a blog very soon about my next stop over spring break: ATHENS!

van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavillion, so simple and yet so beautiful.
A look at some Spanish food, don't ask me what it is called because I could not even begin to guess!
