beaches and buildings

Seth and I spent our fourth day in Barcelona lounging on the beach. We people-watched, caught some rays, and swam in the clear-blue Mediterranean. We both got a little sunburned, but it was totally worth it. In the evening, we stopped for dinner at a tiny tapas place that, upon sitting down, we realized was heavily frequented by French tourists. The food was mediocre (way too salty) but decently cheap.

Today, we visited Antonio Gaudi’s Parc Güell and Jean Nouvel’s Torre Agbar. The former was somewhat underwhelming, perhaps because it was raining (literally) and completely flooded (figuratively) with tourists. The tower, though, was too cool. I was surprised to see that it looked just as beautiful, if not more so, up close. (This is a very rare feat in architecture.)
