Barcelona. Man I have a lot of photos from our trip. About half way through them. Onward we go. We stayed in this neighborhood area by the beach. It just seemed like it was just people living there, not a lot of people who are just visiting. When we got there the streets didn't have any decorations or anything, but everyday slowly there were more and more streamers across the streets. All different colors, and a lot of signs, but I don't know what they were about. I tried translating the signs and Google said it is something like A.C.H.S. The siren will want a good start. 1 Million arrive. By the time we left most of the roads were covered with streamers across them. It was fun.
This day, Sunday, we decided to go spy on all the churches we had seen on out tour. First up was Santa Maria del Mar. I remember our tour guide said that most of them seem much bigger inside than they do outside which was really true. Inside was just like this is huge! Then you step outside and it doesn't look quite as big. Very interesting.
Then we moved on to the cathedral
Which you couldn't really see much of it since there was a wall right inside so...maybe when mass is not in service you can go through...
Geese in the Cloister
And the outside.
Our tour guide had said that every Sunday at like 11am a band shows up and people dance the Catalan national dance outside the cathedral so of course we planned it so we were there when that happened. It was fun, and easy to learn (though I have forgotten it now).
Opposite the cathedral is this Picasso piece
A small art market
Església de Sant Jaume
In Placa Reial there was this giant coin and stamp market we stumbled upon.
La Rambla - the easiest way to get to the water from where we were.
And of course back to the beach!
And having some drinks to finish out day. Only two more days to go!
