The blog started with the post about Barcelona and i have been back numerous times. Eating, Shopping, Sight Seeing….i have done quite a bit of those things. I have a strange affinity for this city….just that my camera doesn’t !!! Its either I forget to bring  the  camera or the batteries every time i am here !

Decided to stay right smack in La Rambla this time. Reason being I wanted to experience whats its like living next to the La Boqueria market. To experience the sights, smells and sounds 🙂 I was not disappointed.

9am. At one of the open air Cafe in the market.  (Don’t worry about which one to go….they are pretty much the same)

“Bacadillo Iberico y Cafe Con Lecce, Por Favor” Gees….i was feeling pleased with myself for saying that.

And then “Pulpo ala Galica”……and then “Patatas Bravas Y Gambas Alio Olio”

930am. What the hell……i have to stop…i need to get out of the Cafe.

The stall owners/workers are probably used to tourists snapping a picture here or there. They actually couldn’t be bother about you and your camera and just carried on their daily activities….but linger on too long and they might “shoo” you away.

Look at all the food, Its better to stay in a service apartment with a full kitchen. Imagine cooking with such fresh and wonderful ingredients ! There are a few such apartments in Rambla and I think one will not regret !!

Yum !! Shall do that next !
