|Back to beautiful Barcelona. Elyse and I found roundtrip tickets via Ryanair|
for only 20 Euros. Gotta love cheap European travel.
|Meet Elyse. By coincidence we live directly above/below each other in the|
same apartment complex. Yes she is great and YES she is 6' 2". It's a beautiful
thing, being able to look someone eye to eye.
|Started off our trip by visiting the Picasso Museum. Interesting to see the|
transition of style from his earlier days to what most recognize as "Picasso".
|Bed thirty one. My place of rest and relaxation for our three night stay.|
|Visited the Park Guell. Another famous Gaudi work.|
|The park was actually situated on a hill, giving us an incredible view of|
Barcelona from a few different areas. The weather this weekend: perfect.
|The leaves here (in Spain) have just started to change. Found this beautiful|
fence on our walk beside the Guell Park.
|And more finds of fun colors here and there.|
|Back to La Rambla. Possibly my favorite street in Spain. The towering|
trees on either side, shops and tapas bars everywhere, leads directly to the
coast. It's basically a great place to find yourself while in Barcelona.
|And yes, back again to the Marcat. Even busier this time with more things|
to look at (which ultimately means more reason to empty my wallet).
|The natural fruit juices. Enjoyed a couple of these again.|
Strawberry Coconut. Mmmmmmm.
|Egg Lady. Not looking so happy.|
|Favorite gelateria/bakery/coffee shop in the area.|
|Love love their light fixtures.|
|Dark chocolate ice cream crepe sprinkled with powdered sugar. Yes.|
|Tomate Melmelada: Tomato Jam. Delicious on toast.|
|Was I possibly raised in a family where soccer was not considered a "sport"?|
Yes. Have I ever had a genuine interest in the game or participating? Not really.
Was this one of the best things I've done/witnessed in Spain thus far? Absolutely.
|Before church on Sunday. Had some time to burn so enjoyed the park nearby.|
This precious little guy kept walking up to me. So friendly. He is two.
His name is Taja (sp?).
|Dessert tour 2010 item number 248. Bombon and fruit.|
|The tour continues with flower-scooped gelato:|
white-chocolate raspberry and coffee.
|Back to Madrid with two long time pals.|
