Beach Day in Barcelona – 091813

Today’s adventure took us to the beach, Olympic Village, Barri Gotic and back up Las Ramblas. We took the underground Metro because the clerk at the hotel said it was 15k to the beach.

Still living with the high from the Camino and looking at our map we decided we would walk back to our hotel. Turns out it was only a mile and a half not 15 k. We stopped into the Farmers Market and picked up some candy, cheese and bacalao to bring home.

We went to the Flamenco show tonight and it was a very nice evening with beautiful and amazing dancing and music. No picture taking allowed. You will have to taker word for it.
