Last year I visited Barcelona for the first time. We fell in love, the city and I. All that gorgeous Gaudí. And the tapas and cava. The astonishing El Mercat de la Boqueria (see pics in my blog post). And the tapas and cava. And those sensuous narrow cobblestone streets…all leading to tapas and cava.
Well! We planned to rendezvous again, Barcelona and I. And I want to speak her language, so I’ve been trying to motivate myself to brush up on my high-school Spanish–but I just haven’t been able to get myself to do it. Then it hit me. I don’t want to speak Spanish. I want to speak Catalan. That sensuous soft slur of Spanish and French.
Trouble is, Catalan lessons aren’t easy to come by. So I took the first step by going to Babylon.com to compose a challenge to a Facebook friend to learn Catalan with me. Now to find some good lessons… Any suggestions out there?
