It has been a slow week here for me. But I didn’t want to go too long without a post. Since Sunday, I have just been going to my internship, then coming back to my apartment. Sometimes you just need a sleepy week.
Yesterday, while researching some POIs for my map, I stumbled upon the region of Sant Andreu. In my 9 weeks, I had yet to hear of this area. It doesn’t have many tourist attractions, so the guidebooks don’t even mention it. Or at least the guidebooks I have don’t mention it. But I found out about these two churches out there that are supposed to be beautiful. One of them, Esglesia de Sant Pacia has a mosaic inside created by Gaudi. The other, Esglesia de Sant Andreu del Palomar, is just supposed to be a nice building.
I took the metro after work to the area, and walked to each of the churches. Unfortunately both were closed, so I couldn’t go inside. This was especially disappointing for the Esglesia de Sant Pacia, because I really wanted to see the mosaic. But the outside of Esglesia de Sant Andreu del Palomar almost made up for not being able to see the inside. I took a few pictures, and although the trip was shorter than planned I left for my apartment.
Tomorrow my parents – check it out guys, you got a shout out – are flying in from New Jersey. I am very excited to show them around the city I have been calling home for the past couple months.
There will definitely be a blog post about the coming week’s parental adventures.
