¿Hablas español?

Better late than never. Here are some Barcelona photos that I have been meaning to share with you. This was such a wonderful day. I did  the whole tourist thing, walking up and down at Las Ramblas, eating the very famous "Spanish Tapas" such as Batatas Bravas(which is my newest obsession, I crave those carbs all the time!), Spanish omelette, which is basically eggs, onions and more potatoes, and of course the traditional sangrias. Sooo many people are out in the streets at all hours, from all over the world, many talented street artists are performing at all time as well. This day I was able to catch the famous party: Festes de la Merce, that happens every year in Barcelona, with a parade of kings and queens called Giants made by local artists. There are all kinds of venues, and lots of concerts, all over the city, fireworks and of course the energetic vibe of the streets. I have no complaints, I feel excited and happy, is it wrong that I feel at home already? Must be the weather, people, places, food, drinks, music and culture! Or the fact that I must be a Gypsy. Either way I accept this easy transition of continents, culture and life style!

  1. Eu tambem me sinto em Casa quando estou ai!
    Talvez seja pelas similaridades com a nossa cultura:)
    E o clima tambem ajuda muito.
    Esses reis me fizeram lembrar dos bonecos de Olinda;)))
    By the way as batatas bravas sao minhas favoritas mas com o molho sem alho!!
    Aproveita bem muito Mel.
