Barcelona

Any reputation Barcelona may have as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world is wholly deserved. A more lovely and good-vibed city I've not been to. Weather almost as good as LA's, killer Roman streets that are more like hallways and fantastic for just getting lost in, stellar food that's never eaten in a hurry (perfect for when you've got six days there), amazing little bars and clubs to drink and dance yourself silly if you're so inclined, and architecture the likes of which you can't see anywhere else because I'd argue few other cities have reinvented themselves so thoroughly after a millenium or so of existence and done it so aggressively over the past 40 or so years. A well-earned vacation in a fanstastic place. What else is there?

Here are a few of the better pics:

Whitney and I at Parc Guell




This was the view from our terrace

And another



And this guy had an amazing head of hair. So I took a picture of him.

And this one was just kind of surprising as I don't suppose I'd ever seen Cape Cod, MA from the air. Kind of cool, right? (click on it, you'll see)
