Barcelona! If you've been reading me for a while, you know that one of things I fall in love with the most in cities is the streets. The corners, the cross walks, the facades of the businesses, the outdoor seating... everything. Everytime I am in Europe I cannot help but feel that the street is truly where life is happening, it is the most alive part of the city.
Barcelona is no exception. With all of its colorful, wonderful, flavorful glory. Every couple feet is a restaurant inviting you in for tapas or pinchxos. Residences and office building and shops that are architectural masterpieces, and the warm friendliness of people.
Even if some of the people are trying to steal our wallet, and the whole ramblas is chock full of tourists, it is still alive. With culture, and history and sangria.
