A street performer along Las Ramblas.

I hit the town today...late.  I got up at about 1pm after staying up late last night eating tapas, drinking, and talking with some Canadian roommates for several hours.  I can´t belive that I slept so long.  By the time I got out of the hostel it was already siesta time...literally.  The town, for as large as it is, almost shuts down for several hours.  I walked down to the Maritime Museum which was great.  In addition to their standard exhibits they had a special one on pirates.  The whole thing was interesting. 

After the museum I wandered towards the beach and found the aquerium.  That was really cool too.  Tons of fish and they had tanks to show the fish and aquatic life in various seas in the world.  I enjoyed that.

Following the museum I wandered the beach for a bit.  By the time I got here it was late already so people were packing up and I hadn´t brought my swimtrunks, a book, sunblock, or anything so I didn´t stick around.  I did walk up the boardwalk though.  I think tomorrow I´m going to try to go to the zoo and then the beach since they happen to be pretty close to each other.

Tonight I´m going to find another tapas bar and drink and read a book I´ve got.  I finally planned out the rest of my trip and made reservations so I don´t need to worry about that any longer.

The main museum only costs 6 Euro.  The building itself is an old ship building facility from midieval times and is beautiful unto itself. … read entire review
