‘Barcelona Wanderings’

In March 2012 I returned to Barcelona, Spain, after last being there in 2007, and prior to that in 2002 and 1996.

My earlier visits gave me the impression of a great city, my wanderings leading me into some amazing places and some unbelievably chaotic nights on those Catalan streets.

On the most recent occasion I enjoyed similar wanderings, albeit without quite as much madness. Unfortunately. Oh there was one night, St Patrick’s Day at a pub … but anyway.

Anyway, I also had the sense this time that the city was just too overrun with tourists. Whilst I was one of those myself, I just found the hordes to be oppressive and that they obscured what was left of the true local culture.

Anyway, in 2007, I did some sketches of some places I saw. Below are two of them. That is all.
