We arrived in the afternoon, and spent the rest of the day walking Old Town and…. SHOPPING!! Although we didn’t get anything, one thing was clear – shops opened LATE!!! Even in summer, even on a Saturday! So unlike “Europe”
The famous La Rambla street. It was a bit underwhelming since we read so much of this famous street in the guide book and it was in fact, really just a road with lotsa people and shops on the sides. Not nearly as crowded or entertaining as Mong Kok. I guess its as crowded as can be in Europe hehe
Candies in the shapes of mini watermelons, strawberries… etc… they looked so real
And Coca Cola came in a slim TALL can.
Our first “Gaudi” visit. The WHOLE of Barcelona seemed to be about this one architect Gaudi who lived in the early 1900s and died an untimely death in his 30s.
This whole house was sooo Gothic but with funny “mushrooms” on the terrace.
As iron was needed for the support of the building, Gaudi decided to make the iron into a design to adorn the building itself.
Just like in the movies… narrow alleys everywhere…
