Barcelona is everything the poets have written about it. A fascinating blend of the ancient and modern, it is a city that never seems to sleep.
Chris and I arrived on Thursday morning, flying into the city just as the sun was coming up over the city in streaks of pink and purple.
We are staying in the Barri Gotic ( the Gothic Quarter), the oldest part of the city. It is a city section of narrow alleys of houses and apartments, each with tiny iron balconies filled with lemon trees and caged songbirds. Below are the shops, ranging from tapas bars to pastry shops to the lastest fashion stores.
I can't wait to explore the city.
