Hola!

I just got back from a whirlwind four-and-a-bit days in Barcelona, thanks to a birthday prez from my housemate G and the joys of budget airlines.

Highlights were many, including: food, food, FOOD; good friends; amazing architecture; a vegetarian luncheon with a fabulous lady in rock; misspent evenings that stretched out to 15 hours on and on and on the town; pit-stops in bars, each one cooler than the previous; chorizo and pink cava (champagne) before noon; ambling around the dreamy paved streets; flamenco hip-hop at the Apolo Bar; hot chocolate that amounted to hot liquid heaven; more good-looking people than you can poke a stick (let alone an entire forest) at; the Gaudi park; an awesome video art exhibition at the CaixaForum, Video Times 1965-2005; and a homeless man silently sidling up to light my cigarette in the street before settling down in a doorway to sing I Just Called to Say I Love You in Spanish.

I love Barcelona.

Did you have cava at La ChampaƱeria? No trip to Barcelona is complete without going there and checking out Casa Batllo.
