Downtown Barcelona there are bars and cafés at every street corner. Whether cheap, plain, expensive or trendy, there is one for every taste.
Autumn is in full swing: days are shorter, temperatures are lower, and grocery stores sell pumpkins and other fruits and vegetables of the season.
When walking around Barcelona, one must not forget to look up from time to time in order to admire balconies which reflect their owner’s taste. Some are quite tiny, others are like an additional room open to the outside world, like the one here.
The sky is overcast these days, and I am craving for bright colors. I have slipped on my special glasses, and decided to walk around my neighborhood. This is what I saw this morning.
Barcelona has a lot of personality. Even though global brands and retailers are present, there are hundreds of proudly-owned small stores and boutiques where you can find beautiful gifts, trendy clothes, and home furnishings that are really different.
