Journal Entry:
My last day in Barcelona. I had intended to go to Gaudi's Güel Palau, but somehow while trying to find it I ended up at the Mountjuïc funicular station. So I ended up spending the day on Mountjuïc. The views were awesome, and the 1992 Olympic facilities, an old fort, and countless gardens were a great way to spend a sunny day.

After getting down off the mountain I went to find a bookstore with some English titles so I'll be able to survive my flights and airport time tomorrow. I ended up buying three Clive Cussler books, so much for my variety theory! I think after I finish them I'll have read everything he's written.

I was going to do laundry tonight, but that didn't seem the right wayto leave Barcelona. I spent the evening hanging out in the lounge drinking with other guests and locals. Ended up back at the Discos at Mare Magnum and didn't get home until it was time to leave for the airport.
