BCN day 2

Posted in Διακοπές, Ταξίδια στις 8:53 πμ από perissos

After a eventful day 1 @ Barcelona, here I am @ 07:30 in the hotel’s business center taking some minutes off to write these lines to you.

(Yeah, you guessed it, I cannot change the keyboard’s key ayout to Greek…)

Yesterday had pretty much of everything: I saw the downside of going on a trip with a bunch of people, especially goofy ones you did not previously know. Plus the advantages of going on a trip with a bunch of people, especially happy ones you previously knew.

After it tooks us a painful hour to cover a distance of a mere 400m because people kept spreading right an left, I had more than enough when 2 people got separated from the group and got lost without any mobile phones, adequate knowledge of English or even a basic sense of orientation. I then set off from the group to catch up with whatever I still had sunlight for.

At the end we all got re-united and, after drinking a powerful mojito(*) @ a bar in Bari Gotti we sat @ Car Calleretes, Spain’s 2nd oldest restaurant according to the Guiness book of records. This resto only works between 21:00 and 23:00 but at the end it was worth the wait. The food was nice, the ambience great and the wine sweet enough to make us have the place upside down with noise. So all is well that ends well.

Let’s see what day 2 holds for us 🙂

 

(*) Mojito’s were on offer @ a mere 3,5e. What we did not know in advance was that the guy was using a mix of Bacardi and Porthos(??) rum, powerful enough to start a diesel engine…
