Barcelona…

just came back to splendid Barcelona where we have lived twice… Once in 2001, then again in 2004, for a total of 2 years… So another one of our “home sweet home”…

We arrived little earlier than check in time, so we had time to walk the famous ‘La Rambla‘. Somehow strange to see it without human statues… (now limited to 15 at the time)
 
also were seduced again by unique architecture…
 
Something really noticeable for us this time (some 8 years later…) is how many advertising & announcements are in Catalan only.
 
 
 
Went to the ‘Mercat De La Boqueria‘…, still one of my favorite markets in the world for its ambiance and its food. We also love to eat there…
 
 
 
It has been all refreshed… and with this new lighting system, it really gives the food all its glow!
 
 
Only little sad that the lady where we were buying Salmon (for my sushi) wasn’t there anymore…

Had some Tapas Pintxos at ‘Txapela
 
 
 
OK, so final stop before checking in… Cafe on the terrace of ‘Cafe Zurich
 
 
 
 
Then finally got in our apartment, tried to have a little nap (but couldn’t… like just too tired & excited to be here!)…
 
 
That was just the beginning of a fantastic and intense 5 days, seeing all my friends… and even meeting new ones.

I used to do my daily morning ‘power walk’ on the streets of Exchample… and somehow this time too, going from one friends reunion to the other (Perhaps I miscalculated my distance & timings? or is it just that as usual, i am always a little late?!… my friends will tell ;-)

So here I am with my great Scottish girlfriend Gillian, who lives between Barcelona & Buenos Aires. We know each other since 2001, through a Social Network Group I had put together here in BCN… Along the years we traveled to see each other in many other countries (Argentina, Netherlands, italy)… and still, we were so happy and emotional to get together! After our reunion, i received a sweet email from her, saying: “I still can’t believe you’re here and yet at the same time it feels completely normal – like I see you every day!!”

Ok, so back on the street… walking, walking… enjoying Barcelona’s unique architecture & feel…
 
 
 
The sun was there during my whole stay… the sky was crisp, so typical Winter in Barcelona…
 
 
 
On my way to another get together…
 
wanted to bring something special but forgot that stores are still closed on Sundays… still, fruits & wine is always good…

Those are just a few pictures of the many tapas places we went to…

Among them, ‘Bilbao Berria‘ (in front of the Cathedrale). I always loved that one with its great variety! So happy it is still there…
