Back in Barcelona, my favorite "home away from home". This trip, I took a chance on alterntive accomodations, an apartment rental instead of a cookie-cutter hotel room. It was a good call. I suggest this route to anyone who is going to spend a while in a foreign city. Just two blocks from Las Ramblas (Think 5th Avenue X Shakedown Street) and an incredible balcony overlooking the city. Good times. Check the tile mosaic on the floor of my spot, plenty of inspiration to be found in this city. Plenty.
