The second week of my time in Barcelona started a little bit relaxed than the first week because I knew where I had to go to work. Our office and the little workshop are in a small house next to the hospital, so if the one guy gets a call that anything is broken in the hospital, we have to go there. It's everyday the same routine, we go to the hospital, collect broken cabel, answer some questions and go back to the workshop to fix broken stuff or exchange it, after that we go back to the hospital and bring back the fixed or new cabel. It sounds very boring but it isn't. For me it's interesting to see the different devices and get an insight to all the rooms they are only for employee.
This week I walked a lot through the city and saw some interesting buildings, a very nice hotel, the stadion from Barcelona (Camp Nou) where I bought a ticket for next week for the game Barcelona vs Atlético Madrid and I saw some coffeeshops. Unfortunately the weather changed this week and theres not as much sun as last week.
very expensive hotel

On Sunday the 4th of september I arrived in Barcelona with long trousers and a pullover and I was really sweating on my way to the flat. The mother and her daughter in whose flat I life are very friendly and helpful so for example they told me where to buy food for little money. Monday and Tuesday were free for me, I just had to go to the "Institut La Guineuetea" where the responsible person to me told me where I had to go to on Wednesday. So on Wednesday and Thursday I went to the Hospital de Sant Pau to the department of microbiology where they tried to explain to me what they are doing the whole day and what the devices can do. It was really difficult because the most can't speak english and I can't speak spanish that good. I tried to explain to them what I have learned at school and on Friday they transfered me to the department of electromedicin.
After work I bought some food and went home and after eating and one hour of hanging around I went out to see the beach, La Rambla and the Sagrada Familia. At the weekend I met two girls from Hamburg and Hannover and we went to a restaurant and drunk some beer.
