Trip Report Barcelona December 2011

Jump to last reply

Part 1-This is going to be completed as I go along (hopefully)
Me, Mrs Muck and a couple of friends, arrived in Barcelona from bristol this afternoon.

The weather is gorgeous, we got a taxi from outside the terminal to our hotel. Hesperia del port. Cost 35 euros.
Hotel seems ok, quite clean and modern. But above all a good location.
Took a walk to the Ramblas area, had some food on one of the street restaurants and watched. The game of cat and mouse between the street sellers and the police. The conmen doing the 3cup trick were right in front of us. Some punters actually took part in the game-and lost. The secret is to get within eye level of the table, that is dont look from above.ok we are off out now, I will keep this going as we go along and as long as the iPod touch allows.Bye for now
Muck
