...in fact, we had some pretty delicious caipirinhas as well!
Given that a picture says 1000 words, I'll let these ones do the talking on the four days I spent in Barcelona at the end of last week...
|Facade of Casa Batllo|
|The gorgeous, clean lines of the attic in Casa Batllo|
|More of the attic|
|Chimneys and handrails at Casa Batllo (I like how he got around a corner using straight rods)|
|Light fitting - reminds me of an anemone|
|Balustrade and sky lights|
|Gate at Park Guell|
|Park Guell - isn't it like something out of Hansel & Gretel?|
|An opportunistic pigeon at Park Guell|
|Ceiling fixture - Park Guell|
|Pigeons and matching flowers - Park Guell|
|The classic with the crazy - Park Guell|
|The heavenly ceiling of the Sagrada Familia - such a beautiful interior|
|Some of the many stained glass windows of La Sagrada Familia|
We had such a fantastic four days in this wonderful city. I was appalled and embarrassed at my lack of Spanish though. "Que cierra la
por favor" plus a big, honest, friendly and hopeful smile saw me through a lot luckily.
