    Today was our first full day after our first night in Barcelona.
    We looked round and looked in a tone of shops and it was really boring, in fact it was so boring I complained.

    ... the mid-1800's when the old medieval walls just couldn't hold the expanding population. The grid-like pattern of wide boulevards is made more interesting because each street corner is cut diagonally, creating eight-sided squares at every intersection. Rich, artsy folks bought up plots of land and the majority of the new buildings in the Eixample were designed and built in the ...
