I had an awesome apartment! Huge for a place in the city!

Liked the food in Barca- I missed spicy food. luckily I lived just minutes from any ethnic food i could ask for!

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Barcelona nightlife is INCREDIBLE! Honestly, some of the clubs i went were similar to ones Vegas! & get used to being nocturnal- my early nights, I would be back in place at 4 am.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Like in any city you need to be on the look out. I didn't have too many problems, but I was really aware of my surrounding... I learned a lot, so happy I did it!

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
