You will not hear me complaining. Barcelona is a nice city in my opinion. A
t home when I told that I was taking a trip to the IT-Forum a fair amount of people voluntarily explained the crookedness of Barcelona crime . . . That came unexpected . .
Well we flew in on Sunday evening, took a cab to the hotel and walked the neighborhood there. Not the most sophisticated neighborhood being Dutch we always go for the cheapest hotels and that of course includes often a lot of strange people in a as I said not so nice neighborhood. I don’t mean strange people in a sense of a Toreador on a bicycle wearing nothing more than a German helmet but more in a sense as shabby and smelly clothing.
But now that I’ve been here a few days and found my way around, eating Tapas and drinking fantastic Spanish wines talking with locals I can conclude that Barcelona is a nice city with a lot friendly people. I didn’t see anything did gave me a feeling of disturbance so I recommend it.
Here’s a picture that I took with my mobile phone Monday morning when I was walking the Ramblas. Not the most quality but you get the idea.
