Barcelona – Day 4

This morning we ventured to La Mercat de Boquería which was gorgeous. There were at least 50 stands with spices, fruits, meat, fish, pastries and foreign delicacies.  It was an incredible place to see traditional Spanish cuisine. After a quick jaunt through Las Ramblas we visited the Picasso Muesum. It was unbelievable how many pieces of his work they had. Starting from age 8, all the way to his final works, the museum had vases, plates, canvases and early sketches. My only regret is that I did not buy the entire collection of chocolate.

  1. I am jealous. Very! It looks like you are having a fabulous time, sweetie. Your 26# of clothing working out for you so far? I see the sarong is getting some use.

    Love you. Mom
