We arrived late in the afternoon - hurried to the hotel and had a late lunch and a cold beer in the sun. Coming from rain and 15 degrees to a sunny 25 degrees Barcelona puts a smile on your face right away. We hurried to the conference and followed the last sessions that day. After a short meeting later in the evening in the hotel we went in to the inner city for some food and a couple of hours of relaxation.
We checked out at the hotel for a nice restaurant in the city - they recommended Salamaca. It turned out to be a great place, more about that later. Barcelona is a real womans town, meaning that the women are strong and indepented. On our way to the restaurant we had a girl driving us - man she had power and she loved her work no doubt about it. She told storys, she rolled down the window and commented the police and all the time with a smile on her lips.
After the fantastic dinner we went for a beer at Plaza Real - a place I just love to come back to. To sit here a warm fall evening and look at the action, listening to the voices the music from a girl playing guitar and singing - nothing beats that.
Later when we went for a taxi down the Rampla - like everybody else - they were cleaning it and the people riding the trucks were young women - this is a womens town - great - to me it was just another signal who is in power in this down.
