Title: A lot to see and so Location: Barcelona, Spain
The Port of Barcelona.
Kathy and I just came back from our tour on the blue Tourist Bus. (20 Euros for 2 days). What a fabulous city!
Yesterday we had dinner in the Gothic Quarter and got serenaded by one musician / music group after another. And today the bus tour, beautiful weather, brilliant sunshine, about 28 degrees Celsious.
We started in the port area, snaked our way past the Casino, the Olympic Village, the Zoo, through the Gothic Quarter to the hussle and bustle of Plaza Catalunya. Along the way we had a quick peak at Gaudi´s masterpieces: Casa Battlo and La Pedrera. The we came across the middle part of the city, up to the hill of Montjuic where we visited the Poble Espanyol (Spanish village), a beautiful 1929 replica of buildings from villages throughout Spain.
The Poble Espanyol.
Then we passed the Olympic stadium, the Teleferic cablecar and came back down into the city where we are just starting to relax now in the harbour.
Tonight we´ll probably head up the Ramblas and check out some authentic Barcelona Nightlife.
We enrolled in a Spanish immersion school. This is helpful, however, a lot of the people here or maybe all also speak Catalan. I'm wondering if we should also take some Catalan. : )
