Had a really nice day today.

Full of culture. Gaudi and Picasso. Reaaly amazing how they envisioned art and the outcome. really inspired my post card hunt.

Joe has a completely different vision of the world-he is able to detect hookers and drugs. The hookers are all black in this area and work in packs. They try and pickpocket the victim. It was amazing to watch. They actually dress like normal people-I would expect a heel or fishnets-maybe some nipple.

To start our sightseeing, I consulted my books and cameup with great plan-mostly because I want to go to the beach tomorrow and thursday. Needed to get as much culture in as possible.

I love maps. I always know where things are-just never read map right-I will blame it on my job-always reading through a mirror-so things are inverted-sounds good.

We bought a 2 day metro pass. Really best way to get around. Our hotel is on the main street. La Ramblas-is full of street performers, shops and cafes. Really great location. The funny thing about taking the subway is when you want to transfer and you have to leave the station-they paint a yellow line with arrows-everyone follows the line-no cutting corners-it is amazing-if only life was so easy.

Going to return the rental car tomorrow. Kind of sad-huge relief too. So excited for Italy. Kari may see the world like me-one glass or wine at a time. =

Loved the pics J/J. Once you see all the Gaudi exhibits you will be able to officially distinction why the word "gaudi" is used as an expression for ornate trinkets and scupltures. I think you will find the beach in Barcelona a far cry from the tropical beaches you have become used to. Stay safe -- and since you like maps so much I am going to save all the free ones I get from the visitor centers I visit. Love You
