Shorter post this time as yesterday evening basically consisted of me getting lost and it raining on me. Not sure how common rain is in Barcelona at the end of April, but there were street sellers showing admirable enterprise by quickly dashing up and down the street offering to sell umbrellas. However, they declined to use umbrellas themselves, which struck me as poor marketing. Doubt Alan Sugar would be impressed.
Anyway, on my erratic journey around my hostel I passed this house:
Nicely subtle and understated I think you’ll agree.
But the noteworthy thing is that I had already walked past it at least 3 times this trip without noticing it. Admittedly on the other side of the road, admittedly I wasn’t looking out for it, but nonetheless.
This could indicate that my eyesight is declining still further, but I think I’ll choose to take it as evidence of how impressive the architecture generally is in this part of Barcelona (the Quadrant d`Or), that such a building doesn’t stick out a mile.
Todays itinerary, couple of cathedrals, couple of galleries. It’s May 1, so hope that some things are open.
