Day 6 – And the end draws near


Today I really did take it easy. Although it would have been nice to sleep in, at about 6:30 this morning out in the square, the sound of falling pipes woke me up. Apparently, there was an open-air market being set up for Carnival. Therefore, I just sat around until Jason got up. We finally got up and went looking for souvenirs for everyone.

We walked down to the Constitution Hall and then down the Carrer de Princesea. We ended up at the Picasso Museum again, but I didn’t go in cause the line was so long, I didn’t feel like waiting. We went up to the Arc de Tiomf and took the metro over to the Placa de Catalunya. We got on the Bus Touristic and road around the north side of the city. I was able to get pictures of some of the more famous Gaudi buildings.

We came back to the room and relaxed until dinner. I went to the Internet café just to check the status of our flights tomorrow, so everything right now is good to go.

We finally went to eat at Agut. It was really good, and I’m actually full. We got appetizers, main course, and desert. We went with Jason M. and I shared a nice bottle of red wine with him. We’re packed and ready for the morning. I’m charging my iPod.

We watched some of the Carnival folks roller skate and bike through our square and we are watching the drag queen pageant on TV. This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve had a really good time, but I’m going to be happy to be home, it’s time to go.

Until we’re back at home, my best from Barcelona,

Lesley
