Day 120: Monkeying Around

Algeciras, Spain – Gibraltar, UK – Algeciras, Spain We totally would have pulled off a few of this in Gibraltar, cos the town sucks. But these, taken mostly up the Gilbratar’s rock, made up for all the suckiness :]  Mission macaque-smuggling-in-backpack failed though. These monkeys […]

Gaudi's Mosaic

Day 114: Pink Orange Red

Sant Boi – Barcelona – Sant Boi, Spain So Pedro had to work today and Marta didn’t. Marta brought me to Park Guell, which is a public park designed by Gaudi. The park was packed with tourists. Probably because it’s Gaudi and it’s free. We […]

Catalan's giants
