Welcome to The Bar Tab, a new section in the reviews category of my blog devoted to the bars that I visit in Barcelona. With a city as big as my beloved Barna and a culture that encourages drinking just about any hour after noon, there are no shortage of bars to explore.
Perpignan is a bit like that uncle that you are scared of as a kid because he smells a little funny, but then you realize that his eyes twinkle when he tells you a story, so you lean in anyway. And you lean and lean and lean, and for a second, you convince yourself that his tales are yours.
Sometimes my youngest students get confused how I, a Californian, have ended up at their school in Barcelona. They also get confused about where California is. Geography is tricky.
While teaching my 12-year-old 1st ESO students, I made the unfortunate discovery that they had no knowledge of basic world geography. Further teaching proved that this horrendous error was not an isolated case.
