La Rambla is the main corridor through the city. It is a wide boulevard of trees leading down to the water. It is filled with throngs of people at all hours of the day, enjoying the flower sellers, the cafes and the many people dressed up as living statues.
The statues range from the mundane ( guy in soccer jersey) to the profane ( man in silver suit on a silver toilet with his silver pants around his silver ankles) to the stunning.

My absolute favorite was a nine foot tall tree man who spun a crystal ball on his fingertips in a beautifully choreographed dance. I dropped in coins to the hat three times just to watch him come alive from his frozen pose to swirl the ball around his body. David Bowie has nothing on this artist!
