Bon Dia, Barcelona. Two things flashed into my mind when I decided to go to Barcelona: FC Barcelona and Antoni Gaudi. Both are always in the heart and mind of every Barcelona people. The following are photologues of my one and half day visit to Barcelona on 19 February 2011. Full descriptions of each picture will follow. Enjoy.
