Day 8 – 311213 1844
I spent the day walking down a big street outside our hostel to La Rambla, around born neighborhood (a really cool and more hip part of barcelona) and back. It has been really chill and I may or may not have treated myself to an ice cream cone. I did share it with kf! It was really yummy.. I can feel the people in the city are getting ready and excited for the night. Girls in the hostel are getting dressed up, the dinner tables are set, bars are getting ready for the crowd. Our hostel is having a big dinner party and so is everywhere else in the city. We will be meeting a friend for dinner then heading to Plaza Espana for the countdown. Apparently there is a Spanish tradition to eat 12 grapes at midnight to have 12 months of good luck in the coming year! We will definitely be needing that and there is no harm in eating grapes! I am feeling a little nervous that this year is about to come to an end but excited for the new year. I may take a ride down memory lane tonight and count my blessings throughout this year.
