Even if this piece of knowledge is harmless and mundane, I don’t like it getting leaked uncontrollably.

    My plan for today was to further explore the historic part of the city, as well as the Mercat la Boqeria. The best way I can think of to describe the later is that it looks like the hall of a train station, which hosts a permanent funfair, which however only consists of food stands selling weird food. There are stands selling mushrooms, raw fish, crustaceans, ox feet, sweet bakery pieces, all sorts of fried street food, chips, etc. It smells horrible in some places (in my opinion), but its also quite a spectacle.

  • Europe Trip Journal – Entry 9: Cable Cars

    Today started with a small hangover. Headache and a sore throat. After some sips of water however, it quickly vanished and it was time for breakfast.

That’s cost-effective and tasty 🙂 After breakfast I took a quick shower and than it was time to say farewell.
