There is so much to see in Barcelona. This is difficult, I have 125 pictures, 21 movie clips to select from. Decided to make three posts out of them.
The bus ride from Carcassonne to Barcelona was a little long. The bus driver had to make a mandatory stop for a specific amount of time. GPS was watching and keeping track. The roadside stop was interesting. With the restrooms and food outlets on the opposite side of the highway, a pedestrian overpass was built to cross from the parking lot on one side to the kiosks on the other.
The economic king of the world, overlooking the Pyrenees Mountains which separate France and Spain. While looking at the map last night I learnt of a small independant county in the mountains between the two countries. Look up Principality of Andorra.
Friday was a beautiful day. It was nice to have free time after checking into the hotel to walk down to the wharf.
Imagine this, all of the buildings below face onto one of the four streets that define a city block. Inside the city block is this courtyard with the hotel Indigo Barcelona on one side.
In the top right corner is a glass cubicle that enclosed the fitness equipment for the hotel. The pool is on a lower level.
After a farewell dinner at the wharf restaurant, we went to a club to watch authentic Spanish Flamenco Dancing. The dancer moves so fast to the live band that his motions are a blur.
