Amazement: Home and HereBarcelona, Summer 2011

When we think of places and things exogenous of that familiar to us, we often suspend into a cloud of uncertainty and resistance. We prefer not to dive into the unknown, particularly when this journey is embarked upon without the company of our loved ones. A possible parallel to such a journey can be an American undergraduate’s studying abroad in Barcelona. Trekking without the comforts of family, friends, and home, the student experiences the life of not only a European but also a Spaniard…abundant with history, culture and passion. Local markets, sports events, rocky beaches, and political fire all pervade Barcelona’s livelihood; yet these things are in fact experiences we may witness in America. Rather, it is as if Barcelona is a home away from home…amazing us one day after another.
