Where I stayed
I'm pretty sure the travel agent has booked me Business Class for my rail tickets. It was really nice; what i thought Eurostar was going to be crossing the channel. Caught up on sleep for much of the way. The view was alright too; interior is dry and arid looking, with vineyards the closer u get to the coast.
Got lost trying to find the hotel once i got off the underground train. It's another nice hotel; room is only a single with a view of nothing. My immediate impression of Barcelona is what i expected of Spain. I found Madrid just like any traditional Western city, but Barcelona seems to have a unique appeal. Had most of the afternoon to explore the local area, then at night i went into the main shopping district to have a look around.
