Had a rather interesting and one could say eye opening introduction to Spain when we were greeted with the sight of a stark NAKED man standing on the side of the main road as we drove in. This was moments after our guide had been telling us about the 'Elephant man' - who has elephant ears strategically tattooed on his thighs and walks around naked all the time!! Although not the real deal he did have a massive schlong and from what we have heard will not be the last one we see! Welcome to Barcelona - where public nudity is legal!
The skies decided to open just as we left to find our hostel - several jandal blowouts and almost arse-ups later we found the hostel and got checked in. Back into the city to meet Sarah and her friends, skies opened again and beachfront restaurant closed so we couldn't get food! Ended up meeting Tara and Sharee for dinner and what other way to start Spain than paella and sangria - nom nom.
