Monday, July 14th, was Bastille Day - celebrating the beginning of the French Revolution. To celebrate, the French students in our program got invitations for all of us to attend a party thrown by the French Consulate. It was held outdoors at a French High School in Barcelona, and included endless glasses of Champagne, French Wine, and French food (actually, the picture below is of me just after I realized the appetizer I was eating was topped with sheep brains), followed by hours of dancing. We had a great time. Jeff, Monica, and Priya were all able to come too, so Monica and Priya spent one night during their couple days visiting Barcelona at a big French party.
