Hello, I am green. 6 o’clock in the morning, I head to Pl. Catalunya station. Today I’m headed to Figueres, the birth city of the famous Catalan artist, Salvador Dali. A few months before coming to Barcelona, I went to an art exhibition of his works in Tokyo, so I was very excited to go to his actual museum. Figueres is about 2 hours by train from Barcelona.

People in Catalunya love balconies so almost all houses/apartments have balconies (according to my dad, a house without a balcony doesn’t sell here). Also, […]
