You Know You're In Barcelona When................

Hello There My Little Emerald Parakeets,

Soooo................ Time for me to pull out the archives on this blog !

I wrote the below archives when I lived in Barcelona, or shall I say Barthelona. I wrote 25 things each, on "You know you're in Barcelona when".............

Part One

Part Two

I am so glad that I did this.  I wrote a lot. At the time, it seemed like it was overkill to write about my experiences since I was living it. But looking back, it's nice to have these memories.

I will start posting pictures later.

Besitos !

I thought I posted Senorita! I am a bit worried about the mullet and milk in a box, but want to go anyways! Your emerald parakeet! -Pippi

I like that you don't need a car to get around and that they have a 3-4 hour day break, music all around...and that you can pee in the streets! lol

I can't wait to see the pics!

I spent three years in Germany (courtesy of our Uncle Sam). They piss in the street there, too

Well, imagine the horrors I faced when I returned back to the Us?

Yep, you guessed it. I peed on a bush the first night back. It seems the police in Columbus Ohio don't have an advanced sense of the world. It took every bit of my drunken diplomacy to not get charged with something.

I think I would have beaten any charges like indecent exposure, BTW...on account of lack of evidence ;-)

Thanks for posting. I will be in Barcelona for one evening in August. The cruise ship will stay in port so I only have that one night then fly home the next day. Great timing with pulling your archives!

Thanks, I always like to hear how people live in different places.

I've never been to Africa before. I've been to Louisiana though. So I guess I'm a Lousiana-American if I had to put something down.

Wow, a pretty new picture :-)

I LOVE the new picture! Single Mom's birthday is April 25th, so I believe she wants to try and go April 23-25th. We are going to try and make it happen.

I used to live in Valencia (actually I just got back from there and miss it so much already!), and a lot of the things you mention sound so familiar! Living abroad is always an interesting experience and it's good to have the memories.
