Barcelona Catch-Up

I haven't put up anything about Barcelona lately. Oops. Here's a quick catch-up from two weekends ago.  Saturday was spent catching Joe up on some of my Barcelona food favorites and visiting the Montjuic Castle.

First we have a random parade down Las Ramblas before I took Joe to Quimet y Quimet.  This went on for at least a kilometer or so and was filled with elementary-school drumlines.

After Quimet y Quimet, we had lots of tapas to work off. So we hiked up Montjuic to the castle. We found this sculpture along the way.
 And this one...
 And then we got to the castle and found lots of cannons.
 And pretty views and funny signs...
 Then we went to the Miro Park to admire this piece of art by the infamous and beloved Juan Miro.

 We stopped for beers at the top of El Corte Inglés and watched the sun set over Plaza Catalonya.
 P.S. The protests in Barcelona are crazy. More on that in a later post...
On Sunday we planned to go the Blau Museum, but after waiting in line for 20 minutes and moving only 200 meters or so, we opted to stroll back to Barcelona along the beach... stopping for a snack of course!
 And watching the volleyball players.  Not a bad Sunday afternoon in Barcelona, huh?
