Day 52: Barcelona No Interesting Title

So, we don't have much to say.

Basically we've been in Barcelona visiting law students. We only knew one of them before arriving 5 days ago, but now we have expanded our horizons many times over, since all the law students in this country seem to live in the same apartment building and it proves to be easy to make friends when everyone lives on top of eachother and seems to do nothing all day long. Plus, there are beaches.

It has been a little strange, though, to be with other people and all. After nearly eight weeks of mostly just talking to eachother (save the week we spent in a Granada language school), it becomes kind of overwhelming.

Something interesting happened at dinner that illuminated this point.

We went to dinner with neat people, including a US law school professor and a Human Rights lawyer in Geneva (see her blog at: www.cheaperthanwar.blogspot.com).* At dinner we talked about important things, or at least we like to think so.

On the last metro home, Lara made a comment to me (Claire) about the number of people at dinner. She was off by one. One too few, you see. When I told her so, because it is important to me to be accurate about things like numbers, she answered naturally that that's because she was counting us as one person.

Like I should have known that. But then I told her that I was mostly just upset that we hadn't gone to the zoo today, even after seeing the sign and all.

*Although her blog was originally supposed to be about human rights lawyering and things, she says that now it has more or less digressed into a discussion of her roommates in Geneva. But we think that's pretty admirable.

Hey - are you guys getting your e-mail? I have sent like four messages to Lara with no response - particularly about cool things to do in Barcelona through my "cool" contacts. Hint - free rock concert attendance etc etc.

We went to the concert and it was amazing...but there has been no real internet access...Farmerm, you are misusing the blog format. You have somehow employed this tool to bring me back to a much missed fourteen-year-old embarassed in front of my friends...
