Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

MontJuic and more

We hiked to the top of Mont Juic from the funicular that connected to the Barcelona metro station. It was a pleasant temperature and we got to see the old fort at the top that had great views of the ocean and surrounding Barcelona. We picked out the Sagrada Familia from the skyline (it will be just short of this mountain's height when its construction is complete). Then we walked down the mountain to the Miro Museum. We had never seen so many Miro's and as an added bonus we got to see some of Calder's constructions. 

From the Miro museum we headed down past the Olympic park and popped in the stadium. It was less than spectacular. :) We headed to the Magic Fountains next and got a couple pictures of us with the crowds.

Then we went to the nearby Arena shopping mall to have lunch at the top floor. We made D try the patatas bravas which were excellent. After a quick break we headed down and went for a walk to Barceloneta beach where we people watched and saw the "local" parrots with the local pigeons. All in all it was a good day. We leave today around 2:00 Spain time and have a long flight back to the US.
