what a face
Since my klumpel pretends all the time being an architect and knowing and appreciating art we got back to Fira and searched for this Pavilion made by some famouse architect. But first we saw a nice ald building (probably some sort of old factory - which was given new life - they turnd it into a cultural centre). Inside we found a weird exhibition with skates made from pig's skin (yeah u r right it was sick!) or this weird objects or strange clips. We were pretending to understand this kind of almostr-art but we left pretty fast.
 In front of the exhibition centre we saw this 'famous'-pavilion, which wa slike modern house in the suburbs. Not really interesting even. We were really dissapointed by this architect.
Next stop  and again - modern architecture - Maritim with the Forum Universal de las Culturas.
Me hiding in babmboo trees - training before Asia trip
Well, what can i say... it's a huge waste place, with ugly modern buildings which look like a huge piece of paper-boxes - the place in Maritim-Forum is coverd by tons of concreat, very few trees, pretty sad or even bepressing (again, Bepressing and not Depressing). We were goofing a bit and went back to the better side of Barcelona. This architecture wasnt good at all.
Next astop - Palau Reial - on the other side of the city with nice gardens around it, but... unfortunatelly we couldnt get in - it's ur fault RJ - they close everthing when yu come!.
Back to Ramblas and back to the hostel. We need to find some pinoy food in thes city, since we couldnt find any nor in amsterdam, Paris neither in Madrid. We decided to act metodically. Logged on the net and .. bingooo!
Woohoo! After few months and many tryes we finally found the pinoy restaurant with real pinoy food! and it was only 2 metro stations away from our hostel.
art is everywhere in BCN
We had there kare-kare and something else i cant rememeber the name. So this is the stuff that RJ and all my pinoy friends are eating all the time! hahahaah
I need try other pinoy stuff.
With full stomachs we went down the Ramblas to Colon and rode the bus to beach, then we walked back untill we arrived at the Estacio de Franca we checked the schedule for tomorrow train for the airpoert and went with Rodalias 10 to Diagonal.
The whole day we were texting with Lili, who should have come from Granada and met us, but her plane was deleyed so she landed in the evening instead of noon. Nevermind, good that she arrived finally! As always we  made a meeting point at the metro station, all she had to do was, come to Liceu station L3 and stay at the platform after leaving the train.
my fans

Grzechu: "Lili, u know the platform! Just get of the train and wait for us, we will come to the platform.
Lili: "Ok, no problem"
After few dozens of minutes we arrived at the platform and... hm there is no Lili.
RJ: "Maybe she's again not getting what's the platform and is waiting for us outside the station?"
Grzechu: "No way, she know's now what's the difference between platform, station, and tracks"
RJ: "I'm teling yu she's on the street at the entrace to this station"
Grzechu: "Let's give her some time, she's a woman, she's probably few mins late, that;s it"
...few mins later...
Grzechu: "ok wait here and i will go search for her outside"
RJ: "Sure"
...
Do i need whom i found out of the station?
Lili's waiting for us! ahahhahaha
Coz we all were kinda hungry again, we wanted to search for some food.
Meeting Lili!
But Lili needed to fix stuff with her phone. We were going up the Ramblas to the place, where she said, she knows.... few hrs later (kidding) - but we couldnt find the place for some time - we arrived - she made what she had to make and off we go on food hunt. The proposal was - let's go back to the yesterday-place with the italian food. The pizza and lasagna wasnt bad! And we went, but coz we didnt know the street name it took like few minutes to find it again - on the way we were shopping at few places and bought sopme clothes. Then we were successfull in looking for this italian restaurant! Yuuupi!
We ordered some good food and talked a lot and laughed even more (looks like we have not that much to say, just were smiling stupidly at each other;))) Kidding!
