Gaudi…Pinxtos… Flamenco

I had no idea how different the Catalan language was from Spanish. I feel like I’m back in Lisbon!! Anyway… It was a gaudi day!

parçue guell

the mosaics were amazing

sagrada familia… Sorry but I agree with Picasso… Too much. It is now in the Guinness book of world records for being the longest construction project ever… Won’t be done until 2026.

the inside was pretty darn impressive, but give me a cathedral like the one in Siena or Toledo anyday.

Christmas everywhere!

gaudi’s casa Mila…I didn’t go in because a tour was quite expensive.

gaudi’s casa batllo

Amazon delivery boy!

yummy noodles and seafood! The waiter said it’s a typical meal served on Sundays by grannies. So good.

they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving đŸ¤”

great Square that is super young. It used to be be full of prostitutes and drugs in the 80’s. Barcelona shaped up after the 1992 Olympics.

lamp post by….gaudi! I went on a fantastic free walking tour this afternoon. Learned a ton. They are the way to go as soon as you get to a new city. Helps so much!

the harbor! For the Olympics, sand was shipped in from Egypt in order to make barcoloneta…. Their fake beach!!

gorgeous night!!

my Pinxtos!!

did you know these are made in Barcelona and the design is by Salvador Dali!!

my cathedral by my hotel!!

so tonight I went to see a Spanish guitar and flamenco because of a suggestion by my friends Pat. It was awesome but the building blew my mind!!! I thought it was a gaudi, but it was designed by Lluís domenèch i Montaner. Absolutely blew me away!!!

Such a fantastic way to end the night!!!
