At the park

Then we walked around some more. Found a good spot to have a few glasses of wine before dinner (at 9pm) at a tapas place. We've been using TripAdisor to find good spots, and all have been a hit so far. Dinner was at ceveceria catalon...awesome!!! Then after dinner we wandered the streets some more. So much fun to walk around and people watch!!

Oh. Re the language. I speak little if any decent Spanish. My husband speaks a tiny bit. None of mastered and Cantalonian. No issues yet!!
I love that park! So cool. And yeah, I think you're OK speaking Spanish as an American. They just pick on the people from other parts of Spain - who they sometimes resent. So they'll ask something in Spanish and will get a response in Catalon. Totally ticked my Spanish friend off, but I thoughtt it was kind of funny.

When I was younger (like 15 years ago) and used to partake in the nightlife there, I learned people don't go out until REALLY late. Dinner at 10 or 11, then the bars are empty until about midnight or 1 after people finish dinner, and then the bars empty when everyone heads to the clubs at 2 or 3 until dawn! It's crazy. Can't do that anymore. ha! No wonder they all need a siesta in the afternoon.
