Spain Trip 2


I went to Barcelona by train, where I rented an apartment for 3 nights after visiting Valencia. There in Barcelona I went to see the works of Antoni Gaudi, Casa Mira, Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. They are not buildings, but great pieces of art! Casa Mira's curved lines are beautiful! The building is used for, 4 apartments and they are still in use now! I guess to live there must be a little difficult because of the curves?  We could see Sagrada Familia from top of Casa Mira※. It's also his thoughts of art to have such a view. Wonderful!  
I was overpowered by the art, in particular that of Sagrada Familia. Of course, the history too. But it's disappointing that there are cranes and construction going on all the time fixing it. I went there twice, once durling the day and again at night time. The building was lit up and the view from the ponds was a beautiful sight at night.
I also went to Tablao which is like a restaurant or bar to watch Flamenco. I could watch it from the center of the front row. Very lucky! Guitar, vocal and dancer were amazing! So passionate!
