I just realized I never posted pictures of our Barcelona trip...
Oh well better late than never!
I love Lufthansa
water in Frankfurt 2 euro... or....
big beer in Franfurt 2 euro. seriously?
and we eat a frankfurter
anyhow we get to barcelona and our hotel is next door to a bar.
and our stupid AC is broken so we leave the window open at night. No way you can sleep with the noisy bar outside. I dont think they ever close!!!!
First meal bread with tomato
duck liver sandwiches
couple bottles of wine
some fried anchovies
and our check 84 euro for all that delicious food. Why cant we have these prices in SF???
second day we walked around the markets. all pictures can be made bigger by clicking!
tons of foie
we ate at barcentral in the marketplace. I dont really care for this place.
foods okay but they dont take as much care in the prep as some of the other places. I guess its more of a tourist trap. Still good food but pricier than other places that are better.
dont get the mixed seafood plate.
I wish we had markets like this here.
pretty dead animals. you taste so good.
and then we go to grocery stores. Amina and I looooove going to grocery stores in other countries and pretending we are shopping for dinner.
why cant we have racks and racks of pork products?
seriously more racks
and even more racks
wine and cheese
rum and coke
then for dinner we went to this place which is popular but u know what... i didnt really care for it.
lots of pintxos and conservas
lots of pickled items mmm m mmmm
foie with choco bits didnt taste like foie at all
croquettes were okay
this was pretty good. salmon and some sort of sweet balsamic
needed a little something afterward so picked up snacks from a chinese market on the way to the hotel =)
and I watched bloodsport on the ipad hahah!
wake up and go shopping for snacks!
deep fried baby octopus.
head to lunch and brave the lines at Cal Pep
jesus this place is small
we had clams
mixed seafood fry
squid and beans
squid and rice
bye bye cal pep!!!
okay this post is getting long ill have to split it
