Barcelona- Day 2

This morning we woke up and hoped a tour bus that took us almost all the way around Barcelona. We stopped at La Plaça de Catalunya and found a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant where the staff spoke no English and so I ordered some very interesting food unintentionally.  Although I tried to piece together, “Does this fish comes with the head?” I only got deer in the headlights so I just ended up with fish… and fish heads. Afterwards Leah and I hopped on the bus again and saw the outside of la Sagrada Familia.  Later Leah, Sam and I got back on the bus and went to la Plaça de Espanya and explored the Museu National d’art Catalunya.
