We are currently in the Western Mediterranean onboard Celebrity Century bouncing around just a bit. The winds are only 11 knots, but the sea is a bit bumpy.
Anyway here are some pictures of the day before we boarded. We went to the Market on Las Ramblas before heading to the Gaudi Apartment house. At the market, we were wondering how do you decide which vendor to buy from and we saw that ALL the piggies went to market.
The morning wake up call was bitterly early this morning. Laura had wanted to set it because she wanted to walk to Las Ramblas to see the open market. Her intention was to see the restaunteurs and chefs negotiate with the purveyors. We missed that part after an early breakfast.
Walking down towards the harbor we saw the various street performers setting up for the day. All of the people who would appear later posing in costume looked like you and I. I felt a bit like I seen Mickey Mouse without his head on in the back stage areas of Disney. Most would turn their back when photographed.
