Gothic Quarter

Day 6 & 7 - Today is a quiet day after the 12 km hike thru the sections of Barcelona. Wandered thru the Gothic quarter and the Jewish quarter. Tiny shops hidden in each of the narrow streets. All sorts of shops that sell souvenirs, Bogadio’s (sandwiches) meats , fruits and lots of small restaurants.

As we were shopping I heard a loud crowd over a couple of streets. Decided to wander over there and found Placa Reiyal. A square surrounded by restaurants and pubs. The noise was coming from Jimmy’s pub where a group of Chelsea supporters had gathered to get ready for the evenings match between Chelsea and Barcelona in the second leg of the Champions League playoffs.

We located a nice bar that had tapas and sat down to be entertained by the boisterous singing in the square. Beside us was a couple from South London and between the 4 of us we managed to consume a massive amount of beer, wine and sangria. Jo and Steven let us know what the words were to all of these songs (some of which are not publishable but were about anatomical parts). They turned out to be a great couple but sadly were cheering for the losing side. We will be passing along our condolences.

We staggered back to our hotel after having dinner and get ready for the next day where we are boarding the ship for the cruise.

In the morning we had time for a short walk to La Rambles, a wide street full of more shopping.

Off to board the Ship and tomorrow is a sea day. I could post a lot of pictures of open water but I think I will wait for Casablanca.

May not be another post until we get better internet connection.
