Calling my week simply hectic would be an understatement for sure. This week I taught my first intensive class and my first business class, which involved spending 6 hours a day in an office with only one person for five days and to top it off I had to commute for an hour outside the city meaning my alarm was set for 5.45am every morning. At this juncture, I would like to point out that spending this much time with one person as a TEFL teacher is unlikely but this student needed to improve their English quickly. As well as this intensive class, I still had my regular evening classes that last between 1-1.5 hours every evening meaning that I would spend all my free time each day getting ready for those and then not get home until about 8. But enough about this, what I really want to talk about is the cosy brunch place we visited yesterday afternoon; Milk.
Barcelona is definitely not lacking in places to eat, drink and hang-out but after being here for 3 weeks Flax & Kale has to be up on my list for the best food and a very decent cup of coffee. The Flax & Kale ethos is one that is very much in-vogue in cities at the moment; Eat better, Be happier, Live longer and their menu is certainly sticking to this motto. They have yoghurt bowls with every kind of seed decorating the top and a good handful of fruit thrown in. There are bowls of fresh salad that are twice the size of my head and then there is the most intriguing item I’ve seen being served – the black burger – which contains active charcaol.
