Barcelona Scenes, 2

Another day's nearly random rambling from La Rambla to L'Eixample...
In the market La Boqueria, a new crepe shoppe

Not catering to the locals, I think; not sure I
approve; nonetheless, we had second
breakfast and elevenses at La Boqueria

Caganers--look it up--have gone from Nativity Scene novelty
to major industry; we would have bought a Trump, but nothing
about him is amusing

Walking past the Palau Guell in search of the London Bar,
which was closed

On Rambla de Catalunya

A few days before Palm Sunday, and everyone is stocking up
on decorative palm fronds

Always looking up at all the gorgeous architecture, it's a wonder
we haven't been run over or fallen into a construction site

On Passeig de Gracia

The red brick is the old Montaner publishing house, the
nephew of which became one of the most prominent and
productive Modernistas

Mid-afternoon BCN lunch--at Cerviceria Catalana, which
Rebecca had put us on to--the first of three visits

Dessert menu

Wonderful cocoanut pudding

Back on the street

Still our favorite, Casa Comalot

La Pedrera

Casa Battlo

World sentiment

Oh, seeing all the buildings. We felt the same way...always walking looking up and not where we were walking. Did you also eat the bread with the tomato smeared on it? I have forgotten what it was called, but it was so good.
