Horns meet world. World meet Thomas Wilson. Thomas graduated with a degree in Corporate Communications at UT back in 2012, but before that he participated in an IES Affiliate Program in Barcelona in the summer of 2010. Based on the fact that Thomas returned to Spain the following Spring for an Exchange Program at Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, it seems like he enjoyed his summer in the Catalonian capital but don’t take my word for it – check out a day in the life of Thomas’ 2010 summer in Barcelona.
Montjuïc is translated as ‘Hill of the Jews’ in medieval Catalan, or is perhaps related to the Latin phrase Mons Jovicus (‘hill of Jupiter’). The name is found in several locations in the Catalan Countries: the Catalan cities of Girona and Barcelona both have a Montjuïc, as does the island of Minorca. When written in a Spanish rather than Catalan context it is generally spelled Montjuich (this is old Catalan spelling before the orthographic reforms of Pompeu Fabra).
If you enjoyed Thomas’ pictures and reading about his visit to Montjuïc, you can read more about his adventures in Barcelona here. And as always, leave your comments below and be sure to check in next week to see where in the world our horns pop up next!
