Friday. I’m totally in love with this place. Being here with two of my favorite people in the world is incredible. I’m having a great time. I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that I woke up with my red panties on. My dream of waking up with someone near wearing my panties on the head, didn’t come true. Better luck next year!
I don’t have much time to write or read. Now it’s almost 2.00am in the morning. We made plans for the day so I’m writing something now and maybe I can add some more in the morning.

The day started LATE. After breakfast (almost at lunch time), we took the subway to go to the city. My cousin’s husband mentioned the construction of the longest automatic line in Europe, going below the normal metro line. I wanted to see it!!
I was searching for several minutes how deep into the ground it is but I couldn’t find that info. I took some pictures.

That’s from the elevator before taking the trip down.

From the hall before taking the subway. I hope you can imagine how deep in the ground it is. Above that, there is the other line.

The tunnels. So clean!!

A church just outside the subway line with my cousin.

The church had a machine that instead of giving soda cans, gave candles to light in the church.

Some buildings from Gaudi and other architects that I forgot the names now.

I want to thank Deanna from http://deannawillmon.com who nominated me for the Liebster Award, a pink one, my daughter will love it!!
And to follow my tradition, I’ll partially break the rules. There were questions this time so I answered them.

881fa-rosa

1.In 20 words or less, why did you start your blog?
To tell a story.

2.What is/was your favorite table top (board game)?
I love playing cards… I don’t have a favorite board game. I hate Monopoly and Life.

3.Better vacation: beach strolling/surfing or mountain climbing/camping?
Doing what I do best. Nothing watching the sea.

4.Who is your favorite person in the universe (fictional is fine, of course, but yourfill-in-the-relative-here may be upset)
Hard to answer. Among my favorites are, my parents, siblings, grandparents, my youngest uncle and some of my cousins.

5.Miracle Whip or Mayo or Mustard?
Mustard.

6.What is your favorite city? (I really just want to know your answer to Question #3 on every password you have)
Dublin. (And I never used that as a secret question).

7.What’s the name/s of your pet/s? (You really shouldn’t have this as your password anymore)
I do have this answer as secret question in one of my email accounts. The name of my cat was Gris.

Something else entirely.

9.Rank these: Sweet, Salty, Spicy, Fried
1 Sweet. 2 Spicy. 3 Salty. 4 Fried

10.What’s your favorite play or musical?
No favorites.

11.Any New Year’s resolutions or is that a bogus practice?
No New Year’s resolutions. A total waste of time because I know I will not do anything I said I would so why spending time thinking about it.

Thanks again Deanna!!

Since it’s Friday and I’m so in love but didn’t know any song mentioning Barcelona, I did a search and found this one by George Ezra that I liked.

Barcelona

Barcelona,
I still long to hold her once more, oh,
My boots of leather,
From Europe
I gather you know, know,

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

A native man sang in a foreign tongue,
I still ache to know the song that he sung,
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shut my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
I shut my mind and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Have a happy Friday!!

  4. Congrats on your award! I’ve never been on the Metro system in L.A. but in NY it is way dirtier than that, or at least it was when I lived there. Save a piece of the chocolate cake for me!!
