Barcelona, a photo a day

tourist traps

It’s all about taste…

A common if unsavory sight in many many of the tourists-oriented souvenir shops in the old town. Can’t remember having ever seen a local wearing this.
Anyway, which one would be yours, should you have to choose???

News. General strike in Spain today. As this blog is not about politics, I will only share with you what will be our life here today: barely any transport, some airlines cancelled all their flights, roads barred by dozens of manifestations, many shops closed… I am not going to work today, not willing to live in a country with 19th century labor laws. Here are some links if you want to know more

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol

Back to Barcelona.  One of the most famous artists having lived here is Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol, better known as Salvador Dali. For some reason, there is this giant egg at the entrance of Barcelona’s Dali Museum. Tourists are doing strange things while posing with it for THE funny photo of their Barcelona trip.
Below, Dali’s clocks, that you can buy in every tourist shop here. Yes, they work! Not quite sure about the accuracy of the timekeeping though.
In another matter, I started putting our Lourdes photos in a newly created blog. You can find it in the sidebar, with our other blogs.

Faster, food!

Quite a common sight in Barcelona, tshirts, jackets, bags with a supposedly funny picture or slogan.
I actually rather like this one, on someone’s jacket.
Run, pussycat, run!!!
My apologies to Luna (click HERE!) if this picture is traumatising. I’ve read somewhere that you can now get  shrinks for pets, should you need it.
