Two weeks ago, I moved into a new apartment. My friend Juliana, from my home University in the states, lives a ten minute walk away from me. On that Friday she called me up, and next thing I knew, we were on a train headed out to Sitges, a beach town 30 minutes away from Barcelona. I took my first step off of the train and wasn’t sure whether I was in California or some secret paradise.
Prior to actually going to Sitges, I had heard stories from my friends who had paid a visit. They only had great things to say. I’m really happy that Juliana gave me that call, because the day we went was perfect.
Since Sitges is right by the water, I can imagine the seafood paella must be delicious. I wouldn’t know though because the restaurant we tried eating at said the paella was 13.90 euros/person and it had to be eaten by two people. Juliana wasn’t hungry, so I opted for a cheap version of a Mexican restaurant,El Panchita. Then again I have a fairly high taste for Mexican food, being from California and all. Oh…and I am in Spain, not Mexico so what did I expect.
Ok, time for pictures!
-We visited the rock walls and caught a beautiful sunset there.
-Checked out the Sitges church
-Found an AMAZING Paneria where we enjoyed pastries and a nice, relaxing cup of “cafe con leche”
-Wandered around the streets and simply enjoyed each other’s company!
Now for the ultimate lesson, and if you’re my friend on facebook, you’ve probably seen this.
