Kids playing, late Sunday afternoon at Barcelona beach | Photo: Magdalena Urbanska
Most of the pictures we've posted so far in our "30 days, 30 photos of Barcelona" feature we took either on the day or the day before. This one Magdalena took a couple of months back; the beach is just a bit more crowded in June!
There is one thing I will always adore in Barcelona: the sea. That's why I came here and why I enjoy it. There is no better place to relax, to think, to meet friends, to play, feel free and happy.
Magdalena is in fact in Mallorca this week, hoping to do some kite-surfing, but wanted to include this picture as it's a favourite.
Put your (useless) knowledge of sit-coms to the test this week
Sit-coms are the theme for this week's Friday Club language exchange (June 15). We guess you already know Friends back-to-front… But why not prepare yourself for Friday night (and practise your Spanish) with the video archive of one of Spain's biggest hits, Aquí no hay quien viva… or the equally popular Los Serrano?
About the Friday Club
The Friday Club meets every Friday, 19.00 to 21.00, in the bar at IH Barcelona.

El Museo Marítimo es uno de los lugares más interesantes de Barcelona. Los barcos a escala real son preciosos, las exposiciones temporales invitan a repetir la visita, y es un punto fundamental para quien esté interesado en descubrir la historia naval de la ciudad.
Solamente por ver el edificio, de más de 700 años, ya vale la pena ir.
