Last day in Barcelona and it rained. Yes. But it didn't deter my plans to visit two of Gaud's buildings and his infamous and massively splendid Sagrada Familia. Learned that most, if not all shopping stores and some other establishments are closed since it's Sunday. Made for quite an interesting walk through the city, completely refreshing realy - such a treat to be able to go about with a sea of people and nosie. The day was quite a contrast to the evening I just had. While I didn't get to a bar to be part of the Barcelona vs Real Madrid footbol match, I did get to see people celebrate the in streets to what I assume was a win (if not a tied). Prior to hitting the streets again in search of dinner and last minute souvenirs I took a much needed siesta. The game was on during that time, and if the shouting, what I assume sound like flares setting off and dogs barking meant anything, it was a thrilling and exciting game. Really was the best way I could've ended my last night in this amazing city. I ended up getting a lamb sharwama with a San Miguel. Yes. I had my stuffed pita in one hand, had it with a beer while watcing folks decked out in hometown gear chanting Barcelona, Barcelona, Barcelona! Couldn't have asked for a better last night in town.
