"On the Road Again"

I love Willy Nelson, but I sure didn't enjoy this long drive to Barcelona!  Mark, my colleague, drove the whole way there, as well as back, while I navigated.  It was a bit tricky trying to find our rented apartment in the city, which was essentially located in the old medieval area ("Barri Gotic"), right off the "La Rambla" (main drag full of cars and strolling tourists) and near a major tourist spot called "Plaça Reial". Maneuvering the big 7-seat Mazda wagon along very narrow medieval backstreets was no easy feat... but we eventually found a nearby parking spot and later the apartment itself. More thoughts on our 4-day stay in Barcelona to follow soon...
