Postcard Update – Barcelona

by brian on February 9, 2009

Ayana and I have made it to Barcelona, Spain after a fast but full 2 1/2 days in London.

Postcards are out by this Wednesday, so send your physical address to the email address listed in the blog under “GET A *REAL* POSTCARD”.

It’s OK if you don’t know me…I don’t know you either!

But we will know each other after I send you a postcard.

At least I have Ayana now to help to me put stamps on cards. But don’t worry, I will still write them all personally!

¡Fantástico! Naomi says make sure to check out Sagrada Familia, a temple created by architect Antoni Gaudi:

Address: Calle Mallorca 401, 08034, Barcelona
Opening hours 09:00-18:00
Admission : 11 Euros Save12% with the Barcelona Card

Metro: Sagrada Familia (Blue Line, L5) and (Purple Line, L2)

Also be sure to stop by Naomi’s friend’s bar/restaurant for breakfast lunch or dinner. His name is Abe Figueroa and the place is Dostrece at Calle Carme 40 in Barcelona. http://www.dostrece.net

Have fun!

Barcelona is my favorite stop as of now, but we’re still less than half done w/ our trip. I’d recommend the Bus Turistic, Casa Batllo, La Sagrada Familia (get the optional audio guide), a Xurreria (fresh churro shop – 1 EUR for 100g!) on Carrer dels Banys Nous and Cerveceria Catalana. Have a blast!

I’ve been to DosTrece! It’s really cool! The food was good. It had a non-smoking area (a rarity in Barcelona) and on Friday evening live music in the basement. Tell Ayana that Abe is very cute!!

I’m sure it’s on your list, but Park Guell is my favorite stop. Gaudi’s attempt at Disney (without the rides) http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/en/albums-en/gaudi-park-guell/

PS – just rec’vd South Africa penguin postcard AND Amsterdam in same day! Thx!!

@ScottFro
Got to Abe and Sagrada Familia!

@J&M
Missed Casa Batillo but got to La Sagrada Familia. We forgot the churro and didn't get a great one before we left. Next time!

@Kymbugs
I'll leave Abe to you!

@leslie37
Glad you got the cards. South Africa was really late but at least it got there.

@Michelle
Anytime!
