Wednesday

Wow! Busy day today. After breakfast, we headed to Montserrat, a Benedictine abbey high on a mountain. It provides breathtaking views of the Catalonian countryside. After taking in the views, the boys headed to mass in the abbey church. We headed back into Barcelona and visited the Nou Camp, home of FC Barcelona. The stadium tour highlighted the club’s rich history, trophies, and players. In late afternoon, we got to see the city by bike before heading to the beach. After dinner, we all wished Scott a happy 16th birthday and enjoyed the delicious cake and other sweet treats. Finally, we headed out to the Fiesta Major de Gracia, a music festival in the streets in which each block gets decorated with all sorts of themes. A few of our players also may have gotten on stage to sing along with one of the bands. Enjoy the photos.
