Just like yesterday, today I took some time to rest and work on the blog and other things. Since I didn’t go out today other than going to work, I’ll take some time to tell you more about the buses in Barcelona, my homestay, and the food.
When I come back from work, I usually take the V3 or 70. The 70 is a nice bus, just like all the others in Barcelona, but the V3 is even better cause it has all the information you need: maps, led screens indicating the stops, and even computer screens indicating the route. You can see the photos below. So even though it only takes me about 20 min. to get back home walking, I prefer to take the bus (considering I have the unlimited transportation pass). I think the bus system during the day is pretty nice; the “nit” bus (night bus) has a different story though…
Now, about my homestay and the food… It’s actually a single topic :p hehe, because when you choose a homestay with CISabroad, it includes lodging and 2 meals per day. I’ve chosen to eat breakfast and lunch because I usually go out to eat dinner. But since I didn’t have any plans today, I chose to eat lunch by myself (I cooked the pizza I bought yesterday) and eat dinner with my host family. I love the tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette) and my host mom knows this, so tonight, we had tortilla de patatas and fruit, a lot of fruit!! After dinner, my host sisters and I clean the table, and then, my host mom and I usually have long, deep conversations 🙂 I love to come to such a welcoming home and truly become friends with my hosts. I’ve said this before and I re-confirm it: One of my best assets is certainly having friends all around the world.
