A while ago my roommates and I all went to Girona, a city an hour outside of Barcelona for two days. It was nice to get out of the city for a more calming and relaxing environment. It is also SO BEAUTIFUL there. We also enjoyed talking to local Catalans who explained why they wanted to be independent. To us, they seemed very small-town compared to the Barcelonians. It was all very interesting. I was also very excited to see Girona because my favorite Spanish-cult film 3MSC2 had an important scene filmed there. I know, I'm silly.
Gettin' some help
We ate some Indian food while in Girona
This red bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel, who designed the Eiffel Tower.
We walked along La Muralla. It was a wall that placed around the city to stop invaders from entering. From the Muralla you can get some of the best views of the city.
