Share    I didn’t think I would like Gaudi.  In fact, from what I had seen, I thought his creations were flamboyant, showy and, well…gaudy.  Thank goodness it rained that fateful day in Spain. I was in Barcelona and, being the dutiful tourist, I of course was going to mark off having visited the obligatory […]

ShareFlamenco: I was first blessed with the good fortune to enjoy authentic, rustic and spontaneous flamenco in Madrid during the summer I spent there in my wide-eyed eighteenth year.  I stayed with my American girlfriend who was living there and had fettered out the best local places for food-ing, disco-ing and flamenco gawking. Let’s just […]

ShareI found a bar in Barcelona. I know – amazing, right? To find a place for cocktails in the self-proclaimed party capital of Spain, the fiesta capital of the world.  It is called BAR-celona, haha.  But, you see, those other bars, they don’t have Estefania, a Windex-wielding, hip shaking, singing camarera. Allow me to start […]
