Summer Holidays Part 2 - Barcelona - Touring Tuesday

After a quiet night in the hotel, we rolled our suitcases to the metro for a ride to our apartment in the heart of Barcelona's touristy area, La Rambla.  Our apartment was smack in the middle of it, and I think it was the best choice for our family.

La Rambla is a pedestrian friendly strip of walkway paralleled by a street on each side.  The street is jammed at almost every hour of the day.  The area is filled with fountains, souvenir stands, street vendors, a few pickpockets, beautiful buildings, and lots and lots of Go Pro cameras.  

The city's busy open air market, La Boqueria, was directly across the street.  It was significantly busier than the market in Lisbon.  So busy to the point that it was not fun to walk through.  The number of people taking photos in the market far outnumbered the shoppers.    

Barcelona began to show off once we ventured off La Rambla.
