A Gay Student’s Semester in Barcelona

Published Date Author: , August 29th, 2010

Stephen White, a junior at Northeastern University, recently wrapped up an internship through the school’s co-op program at DNA Architectos, an architectural office in Barcelona. In high school he had lived for a time in Salamanca, a small town near Seville. He chose to return to Spain for “the total experience,’’ namely the culture, food, new friends, and the opportunity to improve his Spanish and gain a new perspective on architecture. Read about his travels at http://stefanobarcelona.blogspot.com.

A SMALL WORLD: “Everything in Spain feels smaller. My bedroom has just enough space for a double bed, a wardrobe, and a desk. My washing machine is in my kitchen. Every time I do laundry, I hang my clothes out on my balcony along with everyone else, which gives each side street its own personality.”

WHAT’S FOR DINNER: “Tapas, paella, seafood (if you eat down by the beach), tiramisu, sangria, bocadillos (a sandwich on a baguette), and crepes. Patatas bravas (potato wedges served with spicy salsa) have become a staple in my diet. I also have become addicted to olives, a typical appetizer.”
