My Europe Research + Writing Trip Photos - Part II (Barcelona)

I'm sure I'll be posting a lot more of Barcelona, since I'm going to be here for 4-5 weeks more, but here is my first few days here. I don't have any photos of the inside of Sagrada Familia yet or any of the Gaudi houses, but I have tickets / time slots for later this week, so I should be able to post more details on some of these places soon. :)

In the meantime, here are some shots from my more casual wanders around town...

The flight into Barcelona. I didn't realize at the time, but you can almost see my apartment from this shot, lol. It's just to the left of where the photo cuts off. :)

My writing desk while I'm here (although I'm finding myself writing a lot on the couch too, lol, which is becoming more of a norm for me for some reason)

Here's the length of the common area of the studio I'm renting while I'm here.

Snuggly little couch area :)

Kitchen, which I have all to myself, which is really nice.

Balcony view :)

Bicycles, near my place in El Born

Gothic stuff in the Gothic Quarter... this is Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar (this might technically be in El Born, too)

Near my place in El Born

David Bowie... just because. He seems to be popular here. I see a lot of artwork and tourist clothes / items that have images of him, including the Ziggy Stardust years.

La Rambla, from the edges of Placa de Catalunya (overlooking the subway)

My first real grocery run here in Barcelona - fruit, eggs, bread, meat, cheese, yogurt. After having stomach problems for so many days, it was nice to be able to prepare my own food.

These pig legs are for sale everywhere, lol. This is the shop where I initial bought food, but I've seen entire shops devoted to different types of cured ham.

Walking along C. de Jaume I (towards Plaça de Sant Jaume)

A view from Plaça de Sant Jaume

Sculpture in Plaça Sant Miquel

I don't remember exactly which street this is - more wandering in the Gothic Quarter
