Little thoughts…

Filed under: General — decoded_ @ 11:12 pm

What´s with all the 80´s new romantic/pop music in Barcelona? Every taxi, restaurant/cafe, and shop pumps it out! I´ve heard Frankie Goes To Hollywood´s ´Two Tribes´ about 6 times in the last couple of days. I´m hearing Madonna in this Internet Cafe right at the moment.

The taxi´s are cheap here, well if you´re earning Euros. Fast too, these people drive like maniacs, i don´t think Ive seen anyone indicate to change lanes, they just push in on each other, gets the heart racing.

I can understand why everyone here in Barcelona is so thin, little tapas meals, they all smoke like chimneys, and there´s 1000s of steps (especially the Metro subway) and large-long distances involved with doing anything/going anywhere.

There are 1000s of people everywhere, just walking down La Ramblas from the Internet cafe here to the Hostel, about 100m takes 20 minutes.

The shops and shopping centre´s here are HUGE! There´s this new shopping centre that has a floor dedicated to watches, every brand/every model. Lots of awesome shoes/trainers here too, couldn´t resist buying a pair of Adidas Superstar II Adicolor (with different colour stripe inserts) sneakers with black sole/toe shell and a dark green/brown camo pattern on them. I could go crazy with buying shoes here, so many different styles/types I´ve never seen.

The weather has been nice, blue skies mostly, hot but not too hot, quite humid, a couple of overcast days and a tiny amount of drizzle.

Anyway, I´m hungry, off to eat, and continue my look around the shops, I hope you´re all well and all is going well, catch ya laterz
