Day 12: La Boquería and Rebajas

This morning students got a little break from class to attend an ESADE admissions presentation followed by snacks and time to chat with their classmates. The photography class also welcomed a new teacher today, a local photographer named Samantha who focuses on portraits. This photographer will be guest teaching the class for the next two sessions and will teach more advanced photo-taking techniques. Today, Samantha took the students to the market and to a theater called the Palau de la Música Catalana.

In the afternoon, we all hopped onto the metro to go down to two neighborhoods: Raval and Eixample. The group in Raval had free time in the Boquería market off of Las Ramblas and also time to explore the surrounding area. The group in Eixample was all about the shopping! Since there are city-wide sales in Barcelona this month (called rebajas), the students have been quite excited about snagging some good deals. Hopefully nobody has to bring home an extra suitcase!

Now we’re gearing up for the night that everybody has been waiting for: Chito’s karaoke night! The students have had a few days to think about what songs they want to sing and so has the staff. One of our beat-boxing staff members will definitely surprise the students with his incredible talent tonight. Hope your day has been as fun as ours has. See you back here tomorrow.
