What I Learned: Week 6

  1. Vegan/Vegetarian restaurants exist in Madrid (and can be delicious and cheap)!
  2. Watching the sunrise at the beach after an overnight bus ride makes the ride much better.
  3. Catalan is a very confusing language that looks vaguely like Spanish and French with a lot of the letter X.
  4. Even though Spanish churros don’t have cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top (those are the Mexican ones), sometimes restaurants in Spain put cinnamon sugar on top for fun.
  5. Antoni Gaudí designed the stained glass in the Sagrada Familia to reflect the cardinal direction the window faces.
  6. Gaudí’s face is built into the facade of the Sagrada Familia.
  7. There is only one salamander/lizard in the Parc Guell.
