Today is our last day in Spain and Europe. We started out with breakfast at the apartment, a variety of fruit, baked goods, and other breakfasty stuff. Then we walked Las Ramblas, where I purchased a pack of SPANISH POKÉMON CARDS!!!!!! When I was younger my brother, sister, and I all collected Pokémon cards, so I thought it would be cool to get some Spanish ones. After walking the entire Ramblas, we arrived at a Christopher Columbus monument. The pillared statue of Columbus was surrounded by lion statues in various poses, some of which reminded us of our dog Fresca. We backed away from the monument, so my siblings and I could pose like the explorer for a photo. We then tried to find a way down to the Mediterranean, but we couldn’t, so we continued on our way to the Sagrada Familia. The inside of the church is so different from the outside. The lighting on the inside of the church is amazing; the sun shines through rainbow abstract stained glass to paint colors on the white walls. The columns look like trees, and the ceiling has ornate decorations. Some of the towers on the outside are tipped with mosaics. We took an elevator up one of the towers, walked across a bridge to another tower, and climbed a spiral staircase back down. We then went to the Barcelona History Museum and wandered the excavation of Roman and other ruins below the museum. After two hours of exploring ruins, we went to the beach. The sand is actually made of small rocks. At first Anna and I only intended to get our feet wet, but then we saw cool rocks deeper in the sea. Next thing we knew, we were soaking wet up to our waists. This was fun at first, but then we started walking again. We ate our last supper in Europe at a restaurant just off the beach. I had frankfurters, fries and an egg.
