Barcelona, a photo a day

Summer in the Born


Summer. Although the temperatures plunged rather ‘dramatically’ (not my words) in the last 3-4 days, it is still very nice, 27-28 degrees. So, you just leave your windows wide open, letting a bit of cool breeze coming in. There is always the danger of a mosquito or 2 (and I hate the M word!), but there are enough more or less natural defenses around.
Right, I am on holidays this week, so I might actually find the time to browsing your blogs and put a few witty (hopefully) comments… Been extremely busy and tired lately.

  4. Leif, a nice 3 bedroom flat in this area can easily cost 700.000 to a million euros.

  8. Ah! This reminds me of my trip and visiting a friend's condo in El Born, just around the corner from the Picasso Museum. Such a lovely area with nightlife like no other city! The essence of El Born is beautifully captured here, Rob. Cheers.

  11. Those balconies and big windows are dreamy! I guess a big real estate price tag comes with them, non?
