The first thing that happened when we came to the train station in Barcelona, was that I went to go buy some water, and during the few minutes I was away, my friend had all her important things stolen: camera, interrail ticket, passport, money and credit cards, which of course created a lot of problems. First thing we did was to spend a few hours at the police station to get it reported, and then we went to the American Embassy to get a new passport. Her father had arranged it so that she got to fly out of Barcelona the next day with an emergency passport. During the few hours we spent at the police station, we saw maybe 30 others who had the same problem, some of them were people we had been on the same train with earlier that day. Theft seemed to be a huge thing in Barca, and I would therefore advice everyone to keep their valuables a little closer than usual when visiting the city.
