Continuation of my barcelona post.
For the best place to indulge in the Spanish ritual of the paseo (stroll), famous La Rambla is the place to be. One of my favourite place in Barce, too bad we were short of time, else i could spend the whole day here.
or meet the copper jester that lick people on the face and screams I LOVE YOU BABEEEH!CALL ME!
I wanted to take photo with this one, but after witnessing what he did to the people, i change my mind… =.=
Other than that, there’s countless stalls that sells peacock, pigeons -.- and fluffy yellow chicks, artisans that deftly draws portraits like it’s a piece of cake and kiosks that sells overprice magnets, postcards and magazines from Financial Times to Penthouse.
They have small stalls that sells really really nice and fresh food normally grill. We had our lunch at this place call Kiosk Universal and we had to wait for more than 30mins just to get a seat. BUT! It’s just soo soo worth it. I’m not really a fan for prawns, but it’s just so out of the world!! SO FRESH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but i’m showing you guys the photos of the yummy mushrooms instead. haha
We explored Barri Gotic before heading to the beach. It’s a web of narrow alleys with beautiful Gothics buildings, medieval squares. Here lies Barcelona Cathedral, Museum de Picasso and lots more…This is Placa Reial, one of Barcelona most happening squares. Very happening at night for bar crawl, which also attracts of pickpockets. Pretty leh, with all the palm trees.
Then we rushed to our last destination, Montjuïc’s, a hill on the eastern end of Barcelona. The MAIN reason we were there is to watch the Font Màgica which according to information centre starts at 8pm, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Well, they lied again!! The show doesn’t starts till 930pm when we were fedup!! Why does the information centre ppl also lie to me T__T
Anyway, when we got there..there was like throngs of people. Keneft says it’s like going to watch a concert…Gueess what? There’s really a concert being held at the same time. The Police or something. I don’t care..i was sitting there for 1 freezing hour waiting for the stupid fountain to start.
So the fountains was really impressive as it follows the music that’s being played along side. It should be impressive as it’s one of the world best fountain. When the music goes fast and loud, the fountain will shoot high up and turns red. When it’s legato, it will be light blue and as if dancing…but stillllllllllll, it’s damn cold~ and hungry as well..
