Barcelona First Impressions

A short, after-dinner meander, first evening in Barcelona.

Warm, balmy air, not stifling.

Warm, balmy people, not at all stifling.

A style all its own.


The city is alive deep into the night.
It took a full 30 minutes of walking before I saw Starbucks. That’s some kind of record!



Bicycles for hire here, too. When is the US going to catch on to this?

Barcelona, Spain


Cinema! Would be fun and difficult. Would the movies be in Spanish (Castellano) or Catalan?

Yummy ice cream (gelat). I had a double cone! Caramel with sea salt and tres leches. Seemed appropriate somehow.
