Day 3: New Neighbourhood

It has been a couple of days since I moved to Barcelona for starting MBA course at ESADE.

One thing that would stress you when you move a new place is your residence, and in this context I am very satisfied with my choice this time.  I booked an apartment here in Barcelona when I visited there in May.  My new neighbourhood is called Sarria.

Barcelona is divided into 10 districts, each with its own Citizen Services Office and Sarria is one of them.  It is an old neighbourhood located at the top of the city.  (Barcelona faces the Mediterranean Sea and is hill westward.)  It was the last village to be incorporated into Barcelona in 1921.  It is a heaven for those fleeing the noise and crowds of the city centre.  There is a lovely little church in a plaza in the neighbourhood.
