Contemplation , I think they short changed me on the beer , will I or wont I have another , your guess .
Ok back to present day , this next photo shows how bloody early we get up , this is la Rambla usually packed . Actually thinking about it the Barcelonians go to bed so late they don't get up to late . Most of the shops that don't sell food shut for about 3 hrs about lunch . They like there old fart naps too ( OFN )
On to another Guadi production , this one he transformed an existing home . Casa Batllo .
I think during this period he was hitting the LSD a bit hard , he was having psychedelic nightmares . Lucy in the sky with diamonds . All that aside , the concepts he used were absolutely brilliant . Don't think I'm to hard on the guy , half his peers thought he was strange . The other half he shared his LSD with , my theory . More photos .
You may notice that when you enter this house weird devises attach to your ear , and no matter how hard you try , you can't get them off , until you leave . HS is not actually smiling , that's a grimess as she tries to pull hers off .
The next photo HS actually stopped to take in her rush to the roof , you should know why by now , the rush to the roof that is .
If you hadn't guessed why the hurry now you know , she actually dislodged that contraption from her ear , nothing was going to ruin her photo with her phallic chimney stacks .
As we left so early we had not had breakfast , nothing was open when we left , so,we stopped near by , my mistake , turned out a cheap copy of Maccas . One small hic up in one fab City .
Walked up to next Gaudi building , HS insisted , I wonder why ? Casa Milo or La Pedrera ( apparently this means stone quarry ) for more info go to , where else the Internet , I'm not a bloody tourist guide .
And why the desperation to get here .
First up , these stacks were called Witch scarers , obviously by this photo that's a myth . Second someone was told stop stroking the stack and no you can't take it home with you . Not happy Jan . Once again HS can give a personalized copy of each and every stack if requested . Oh yes she actually took a photo of me after a lot of pleading .
If you look hard you can see Sagrada Familia , no behind the green top fools . Again in this building his brilliance was apparent .
Finally dragging an unhappy HS away with the promise of food we headed back to a place HS read about . Luckily I found it , away you doubters . Not only was the place good , the food and of course the drink good , we also managed to give the buskers the slip . A bonus .
Left , wandered a bit more , stopped for drink next door to Hotel , only to re hydrate . Then back for the obligatory OFN . Refreshed , back next door to court yard for Tapis and you can't have Tapis without refreshment .
