The following morning, we somehow managed to drag ourselves out of the hostel in time to see to the huge Red Bull event that was taking place on Parc de Montjuic.
It took us a while to find it, despite it's size and noise level, but it was pretty entertaining... It was a massive soap-box car derby that hosted nearly 100 competitors from all over the world who built ridiculous gravity powered vehicles. They then would race these vehicles at quite a fast pace downhill, over jumps and around hairpin turns. It was quite the spectacle. They had big screens to show off their intro movie and possibly a funny send off...some of the crews even ran after the carts while other's crashed right in front of you!
Halloween was spent at the boys' hostel drinking plenty of sangria and playing drinking games before heading out to a huge beachside club. Costume stores and our budget were limited so Kevin dressed as a flamboyant magician and Ariel dressed as a bunch of grapes. (We spent most of our train ride blowing up and taping purple balloons all over her shirt) It was a wild night and great end to our 8 days in Barcelona.
