the streets of barcelona

 
It’s always so fun to go back to Barcelona! I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since my last visit… we get so wrapped up in life and responsibilities that before we know it, things have fallen by the wayside. It’s a good thing to remind myself because I certainly don’t want it to be another 4 years πŸ™‚ Luckily this time my ESADE reunion prompted me to find a few days in early September to walk around this beautiful city again.

The typical Barrio GΓ³tico streets.

Not sure if you can see this, but someone put $ stickers on his eyes which I find to be quite a nice little allegory πŸ™‚

It gets crowded at Placa Espanya in the evening.

One of my favorite streets in the city. I used to live not too far from here so I’d find myself walking up it often. This a great photo my brother took with an old school Zenit back in the day right on it.. yep, he’s a better photographer than I am πŸ™‚

One of my favorite views of town… Sagrada Familia from the top of Park GΓΌell around sundown.

The fountain show is nowadays mostly viewed through the back of a smartphone.

Hot day in September means everyone is going to the beach, metro was packed πŸ™‚

Family run businesses are my favorite. These mom and daughter were so alike.

A bit drastic that one, but a nice decoration job nevertheless πŸ˜‰
