Barcelona on a Motorcycle!

Actually it was a motorcycle with a side car, and I was in the sidecar.  Our driver took us on a tour of some of Gaudi's architecture, Las Ramblas, and then up Montjuic where this was our view of the monument of Columbus and the city.  Spectacular!

Gaudi's Casa Batllo was a mesmerizing experience, especially the rooftop.


Every element, including the chimney stacks, were adorned with his art.

Tiny ceramic pieces covered these stacks in amazing mosaic patterns.

We stayed at a hotel on Las Ramblas, where people watching was a major activity.

including the tourists!
