my trip is coming right up and i have a couple days to spend in barcelona, Cataluña , España, espana viva. anybody with advice on where to stay or not to stay, what to do or not to do, what to see or not to see, if you would be so kind as to leave a comment here or email me, i'd be much obliged, gracias.

in the spirit of cheap travel, here is william o. johnson's poem-

"Can we buy three"?
"No only one!"

I want some pizza, Daddy you are no fun!"
Disneyland, Knots Berry Farm, The San Diego Zoo
and anywhere we go,
Daddy always packs the car full of food
because we are on a Budget.

On a cross country trip to visit family and friends, he had a
calculator to track every penny that we could spend. We
brought our own juice, and numerous healthy snacks,
he said we're saving money,
and you know what followed that!
"We are on a Budget!"

We go to the drive-in, so that we can bring our own food.
Dad gets all excited, and he's in a great mood,
as we take our place in the movies,
he pulls all of the food out of the trunk
and as the movie starts
we begin to munch and crunch.

I heard dad lean and whisper,
"It's a good thing we're on a budget,
we can come to the movies every weekend."

(Dali Escultor

Reital Cercle Artistic Building, Sala Guell

Open daily from 10am to 10pm

With a superb location adjacent to the Cathedral, this stunning exhibition space is fully dedicated to the polyfacetuc genius of Salvador Dali. The main focus is on his less well-known sculptural production, with about 60 works including the 44 from the Clot collection, created by Dali with his own hands starting from was models. Grouped by themes, the sculptures are complemented by drawings, etchings, lithographs and photos that establish the artists work, personality, obsessions, and historical moment for the viewer. Divided into ten distinct spaces and complementing the sculptures with close to 400 other works, including etchings, lithographs, 200 photographs, 40 drawings, as well as some singular objects)

we found places to stay - hostal levante & hostal grau - should be muuuuuy interesante amigos.
