Day 1 in Barcelona; day 3 of the Spain trip. Rode the metro: Passeig de Gracia to Jaune. Visited Museo Picasso. My fave: mujer con mantilla. Refreshments at a cafe. Visited El Born Cultural Center of Memory, an archaeological site. We visited Park de la Ciutadella where we lost Paul. Visited L'Arc de Triompf. Beverages. L'Univers at Mercat de Santa Caterina where we found Paul. Cathedral of Barcelona. Palau de la Musica. Nap. Dining al fresca at TapaTapa where all the food had mixed reviews in our group except for the paella which everyone agreed was too salty. Barhopping with Wayne, Quyen, and Charles: Arena (where we arrived early and were pretty certain it was ladies' night), Believe, Punto. At Believe the Eurovision finale played on the big screen, and the place was very full with lots of excitement over the singing contest.
