Andorra, the only real catalan country.
What is your bedside reading right now? I am in some good old sci fi, Ark, by Stephen Baxter.
More b&w here.
A common sight on the ramblas, Mr Goldie Boy. Not that street entertainers left, only 15 in the morning, 15 in the afternoon, according to municipal laws and rules.
One of the side entrances to the Plaza Real, the royal square, one of the jewels of Barcelona, just off the Ramblas. There is a youth hostel on the square, the Kabul youth hostel, where I used to stay many years ago, when I was just another tourist in town. Happy days!
This is the extraordinary entrance to the Cosmocaixa science museum. You actually have to spiral down, around a 30m/90 ft tall brazilian rain forest tree.
Elevators to go out…
And by the way, I almost forgot about it, but this blog celebrated it’s 5th blogaversy on may 10th. Hooray!!!!
The street lamps on the side were designed by Antonio Gaudi himself.
More from Horta, the park with the amazing maze.
More Weekend Reflections, right here.
It is the weekend, and I might do just this… Ah, who am I kidding, I wont have the time to do it!
…in January, at the Catalan Circus Raluy. I only turned the photo into black and white, no other treatment or mistreatment.
La Formiga d’ or, or golden ant, is one of the nicer bookshops in town. We just love the place, being giant bookworms. There are 2 of them in town, one in the cathedral’s cloister, and one nearby. Both have a very medieval feel. What’s your favorite bookshop like?
A rest for the eyes, after so many colors in the Palau.
This is what I saw just outside the Palau. Don’t know what was the occasion, but a belated happy something to you!

Seagulls. Plenty of them around. Definitely part of our world!
I have very little time at the moment, can’t browse your blogs as much as I would like to. Will be back soon-ish.
As Cat Stevens would say. And we love our cat!
