...Oh, Barcelona

< 3 Days

overcast 59 °F

Took me a while to get here but it already seems like I won't have enough time to truely take in what Barcelona has to offer. After a long overnight bus ride into the city, and got 20 minutes worth, ate breakfast at the hostel and instead of hitting the streets at 10am, hit the sack intsead. It was two hours of a lovely and much needed nap. Woke quite refreshed; after some slight research and mapping set out to explore.

After 5 hour of walking, lunch, a snack a delightful looking dessert I couldn't resist (i.e. xuxos - think fried zeppole filled with custard creme, SO GOOD) and, "cafe con leche para llevar," (yes, I founded a place with takeaway coffee, and yes, it was the worst coffee i had outside of the last hostel I stayed at) and taking in the sights...I think Gaudi is amazingly cool. An architect by trade, he's built a number of buildings around the city and they're so whimical and beyond his time. Out of the 6 (or so) I got to see 5 of them!!! I simply love it and that's only the blg exterior!! Can't wait to visit some of them later today.

At last...while I finally figured out how to get more time on the internet here at the hostel, they are closing up the area. Boo. It's nearly 4am and I'm now wide awake. Hmmmm...wonder if anything is open at this time. Ha.
