22.12.2011 - 27.12.2011
My family arrived on the 22nd of December and we stayed in Barcelona until the 27th. We spent Christmas in Barcelona which was very different than in the United States. The O’Leary’s also came down to Barcelona. The things we did were no different than what I had already done, except for the Christmas Swim in the Mediterrean. Both Tom and I decided that we would go swimming on Christmas day. He had to persuade me a little once we were actually down at the beach, but I did eventually run in and swim. It was a little chilly but not as cold as Nauset beach... in the Summer. It was so fun showing my family around Barcelona and spending time with them. I will be sad to be leaving the city I have called home for four months, but I am definitely ready to go back to my real home in the United States.
