Revving Up For New Year’s In Barcelona!

Entrance to market_4254

My husband and I stepped out today, eager to see what was going on in the city.  Naturally, we started at the famous Boqueria, the enormous market downtown, off the Rambla Catalunya. I needed a couple of things and thought I’d stock up.

Everyone else in Barcelona thought the same thing!

So much fun to people watch. And to listen to the languages. I heard Catalan, Spanish, German, English (several different accents!), Italian, French, and other languages whose origins I couldn’t place.

So continental to shop, then sit with family and friends for a bite during merienda.

After a little refreshment, it’s back to the offerings at the market. Shell fish sound good to anyone?

A salad to go with?

Lettuces_4228

Or how about some fruit?

A little something smooth while you shop?

Jugos_4225

Or flavors meant to add zing?

Don’t forget the heat!

Or the yum.

Then off to walk the narrow streets of Gotic to see what’s up. I love this tradition: “Good wishes.” On the trees outside the shops, friends and patrons leave notes with wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year. Beautiful, isn’t it?

You’re going to be good in 2013, aren’t you? Don’t lie!

You say your stomach’s growling again? Tapas! Does the trick every time!

Stay tuned for more New Year’s fun!
