La Rambla

Believe it or not, it's not all about Food (until tonight)

Even though Jeff and I have been to Barcelona many times we still enjoy the Rambla. This main boulevard stretches from the Mediterranean into the city for three quarters of a mile. It is lined with an arch of trees and multiple structures with wrought iron balconies and a wide variety of architecture from the ancient to the modern.



And this interesting building where the Chinese sell umbrellas -


Today as we strolled along the Rambla we saw thousands of Frankfurt soccer fans already celebrating todays game against Barcelona in the many cafes that are open for gathering, drinking, eating ..oh.. and singing, along the sidewalk. My favorite sight - the flower shops overflowing with beautiful, colorful blossoms.


We want into the Plaza Royal with it's Palm trees reaching skyward, the pigeons scrambling for crumbs and took a break along the fountain while the morning deliveries were being made to the cafes that surround the edges of the Plaza. A beautiful sunny day, unlike yesterday. So great to see all the people out and about enjoying life again in this exuberant, noisy, active city.
