We all flew into Barcelona at about 9:30 this morning. We blew through customs like it was our job and then we got on a charter bus to our apartments in the neighborhood of Plaça de Sants. Plaça de Sants is smack dab in the middle of Barcelona with close access to the red line Metro. After settling in we had a little siesta, found a pastry shop, ate our finds and went on a tour of Old Barcelona. We hit the new Ramblas, which is mostly name brand designer boutiques, and we eventually made our way to the original “Las Ramblas” where it was filled with small boutiques and restaurants. We stopped at la Catedral de Barcelona and grabbed tapas in the Jewish neighborhood.
