Barcelona in May

Sup?

So last May I spent some days in Barcelona! It was really a pitty that it rained nonstop for 2 days and the weather was crappy for other 2 days, but in the last one I could do basically everything I didn't in the first ones hehe.

Anyway, Barcelona is a very interesting city, with lots of kinds of architecture and some of the best urbanism in the planet. It is also a very fun city, with a boasting nightlife and excellent clubs. I especially liked this feature of the city.

Well anyway, let's take a look at the pics:

1 - Ramblas (a huge and broad sidewalk in the middle of an avenue, the main axis of downtown)
