      ... is so expensive there compare to supermarket prices.
      Next is a walk down the Arc de Triomf street to the Park de Ciutadella. The street is lined with trees and parrots flying between the trees. At last some bird life in a city. Its not really a street but more like a park. It is ever so wide and hardly and cars. The street leads into the Park which is just ever so beautiful. Stunning water falls and lakes. So peaceful and relaxing, and not very ...

      The 1888 World's Fair in Barcelona and the Birth of Modernisme

      Barcelona’s social and cultural vitality has been shaped by several mega-events in its past which have spurred the eclecticism the city now boasts.

      ... very ornate side chapels and even lit a candle at a side chapel dedicated to St. Joseph, the patron saint of my mother.

      After seeing el Catedral I was able to try some Spanish horchata, or as they say in Catalan, orxata. Here, the horchata is not made from rice. Instead it is made from a certain kind of root. It was still very good, but distinctly different from the Mexican horchata I am so used to in Arizona. I would describe it as being a little more heavy and tasting ...
