Last weekend I visited my friend Hannah who is studying abroad in Barcelona. It was nice to get out of the cold city of London for a bit to the sunny 80 degree weather. Lucky for me, I randomly picked the weekend that the biggest festival in Barcelona takes place, La Merce. It seemed like the entire city took part, with activities during the day and free concerts throughout the streets at night. I don't think I could've experienced the spanish culture better in the short period that I was there, even though I did miss a lot of the main tourist sites (gives me a good reason to go back)!
one of Gaudi's famous buildings, Casa Batlló
Views of the city from a rooftop
Boqueria Market in La Rambla
One of the many concerts
Traditional Catalan cuisine (yum!)
Professional slackliners doing tricks in the park
Walked into a zoo trying to get out of the park...only in Barcelona
