... about my big night. As for today, well you can imagine it was a bit of a slower one. I spent my afternoon wandering la rumbla, the main drag in Barcelona.

... visited a tapas bar right off. It is so nice eating this way. A glass of vino Blanco and small bites. We followed that up with a trip to a local coffee shop for a cappuccino. Best coffee yet. Never bumped into the kids once but I'm not surprised. Downtown Barcelona is huge. There are several corridors that break off the Main Street. It's a lot like San Sebastian but bigger.
