Spain is pretty cool. I especially love Barcelona because of all the Gaudi influence there. The cathedral, the park, it's fantastic, colorful and totally unique! The Ramble which is the massive walking path down the middle of a main road filled with street performers and stalls that sell everything from pets and exotic birds to food, magazines and flowers. It's a fun place to be. We stayed on the Ramble towards the middle so it was just perfect. It was close to a massive market with fruit, meat and baked goods, I will say seeing the butcher skin the goat's head put me off but... maybe it's yummy if cooked right? I think it was worse cause the eyes were still looking at you, but what can you do.
Oh, one last thing about our trip... hint, be careful when you go up to the Fort, so... we just had small amounts of luggage on us, it was a weekend trip, so we thought we'd take our bags and go see the fort then head straight to the airport. Well we went at the end of hours and when we walked out, there were no taxis!!!!! We had 2 hours to get to the airport and ended up hiking down the side of the mountain and past the old Olympic stadium and into the middle of a creepy area until we finally found a taxi with about an hour to go. We just made our flight. The moral of the story? Don't push your luck, you never know when it might run out. Oh, and wear sensible shoes, no mules or heels when you're on holiday cause you just might have to leg it sometime.
