Barcelona, Spain

Top of Las RamblasOne last stop on the cruise after Marseille. The cruise ended in Barcelona, Spain. Patricia and I like this city a lot. We’ve been there before (photo set) and it was the first city I traveled across the ocean to. Previously I’d been to a city or two in Canada and Mexico, but never outside of North America.

Joseph and the Baby JesusIt’s a great city. We stayed one night off of Las Ramblas and we showed the family around a bit. We had some incredible Spanish food at 4 Gats and Patricia and I went back to our favorite cafe in Barcelona: Forns del Pi. One of the interesting things we found this time that we didn’t know before is on the 4 Gats restaurant corner outside is a statue of the Baby Jesus being held by his father, Joseph. It’s rare to see the Baby Jesus being held by anyone other than his mother, Mary.

Less than 24 hours in Barcelona and we were back on a plane, heading back to Orlando and reality.

I don’t have a lot of photos of Barcelona, but you can view the set or the slideshow.
