Trying to master a foreign language

Training in Barcelona

The following entries were written in Barcelona, while I was doing an AIIC Spanish language and culture course. I am uploading them only now, after the fact, because in Barcelona my access to internet, at times when I could write, was patchy at best. Truth be told, I had very little time to write at all, what with the lectures, the visits and time spent with friends both old and new. I arrived in the city on July 20. The plan was to have a couple of days to kick back before any serious work got under way. The course itself took place from July 23-28.

The entries are in Spanish–my first attempt at activation. Please feel free to comment, and to correct any mistakes.

Rumbo a Barcelona
Llego al aeropuerto sin ningún problema. Es un trayecto que conozco muy bien. En el tren (RER B), nunca hay sitio para las maletas, que los viajeros dejan donde pueden, aunque la linea comunica la Paris con el aeropuerto Roissy Chasrles de Gaulle. Siempre hay músicos que tocan instrumentos con mas o menos éxito. Cruzamos sin parar los suburbios del norte de Paris, un trayecto que dura apenas cuarenta minutos.

El vuelo no está lleno–quizás la consecuencia de la crisis. Una hora y media mas tarde, estoy en Barcelona. El aerobús me traslada del aeropuerto hasta la Plaza de Cataluña para solamente 5,65 euros. Empieza muy bien este viaje.
