The food was awesome. Very very awesome.
The city was awesome. None of our cities here in the States have half as much personality. I like Gaudi's works especially, and bought a small sketch of two hands that Picasso made.
The people were people. Sinners and saints, parents and children, men and women, lovers. It amazed me how well I could understand emotions and intentions even if the words escaped me. "Same planet," my friend said.
But I am back at home, comfortable on my own dear bed in my own lovely house. My room is a mess and we have two kittens.
I went to a nearby lake yesterday with Maria and that was lovely beyond reason--after a month of only seeing someone's words on a computer screen, seeing them is surreal and unnerving, even, if they are your significant other. But, it's all good. We spent all day getting reacquainted and swimming around.
I am unpacked and got the wireless working, and forgot to buy my brother anything, which makes me feel like a tool. Ah well.
