Today was a shopping day and it was rather crazy! Hayls and i woke up pretty early and as we didn't want to bother anyone who was still sleeping off we went to explore gracia and all the shops it has to offer!!! :)
The first awesome thing we saw were one of the 3 kings! The 3 kings seem to be more important in Barcelona than father christmas even though this man looked pretty father christmassy he was way cool! Then we hit the stores first into LSD (love sex and diamonds) what an Awesome shop! It was way cool ad ha lots to offer from clothes to frames to trinkets to little hearts that you would wind up and they would walk around... ;) we then went into every store we could fond on the way back from the bank going back toward the shop! Yay it was super fun!
One of the significant stores that we spent tons of cash in was called doctor paper it was kind of like a stationary/bookstore/really awesome random stuff store! ;) I got a super cool diary that I can write my expenses, a todo list and other fun stuff that is just up my alley! Hayls went kinda shopping mad! It was really fun!
Upon arrival back home we got delicious French toast YUMM and peas! Kat makes really good peas and you have to eat them with yoghurt! Delicious!
Kat found out that a market was being made in the plaza just outside their flat so she took us to go see it! Everything was hand crafted and AWESOME!!! They had cool beanies with owl faces on them! Sooo cute I wanted one but they were only in baby sizes ;( and also a zebra fur dog collar! aWESoME!!! Has and Kat thought though that it would be wierd to have another animal on Charlotte. Which i suppose is true but still how cool would it have been to have a zebra print collar!
After that Caroline and her boyfriend pedro met up with us and we went for drinks in the plaza down the road from us which has a stunning clock tower in it! Sooo pretty! I drank a cocoalat and we had croquettes! Which are deep fried something or others... They were yummy! Then we decided to meet up with Jackie wilks and her boyfriend Craig at the ramblas! While we waited for them hayls and I went to explore the hello kitty store next to cafe Zurich! It wa so cute and everything was pink and white!!! Ahhh I love it they had everything and it was all cute! Androids expensive ;(
When we met jax we walked down las ramblas and found a cute cafe whose logo that Hayls really like was I chicken in the snow! ;) we had sangria and salame dolces Yummy! They were rounds of chocolate with biscuit in them that looked like salame! It was really Great to see they wilks girls and to sit and chat like we belonged in Barcelona and this was life as per usual! Awesome!!! ;)
We decided to go to have paella at a restaurant just further down las ramblas! It was called les cuinze niches which means the 25 nights or something to that extent! It was lovely and I think rather fancy and expensive! The whole changing currency thing is a bit beyond me I get confused at what is a deal and what is not! Like 3€ for a cookie is a bit extreme but 8€ for paella is not so bad!? I dunno like I said it's confusing!
After a lovely dinner we said our goodbyes which turned out to be rather tearful ad we came home via metro! I am loving the public transport!!! When we got home it was time for bed as we wanted to be up early to go see the sagarada familia...
Adios ;) hasta luega
