We started our day slowly, and hoped to explore the city by foot. As soon as we walked outside, we encountered an exchange market, which is a market where people trade their old unwanted things with others.
We found someone who spoke English to give us directions, and she told us to head towards the Plaza Catalunya, where we would find human statues and street performers. On our way, we pass several architectural jewels of the city, including Antony Gaudi’s Casa Milá and Casa Batlló.
We then walked down Las Ramblas and went to MACBA – one of Barcelona’s biggest skate spot. Sadly, we witnessed the police arriving and driving skaters away, giving tickets to some. But they didn’t stay long and as soon as they left, everyone started skating again. I had a great time and it felt really cool to be at a place familiar to me from skate videos.
The evening ended at Bar Celta Pulperia in the old city: batatas bravas, tortilla de batatas, pan con tomate and pulpo galego.
