visual report

Downtown Barcelona yesterday - many, many people walking around and looking for the perfect book to buy as a present for the gentlemen (you may want to read the prior post first...) The Ramblas, one of Barcelona's most famous boulevards, was closed for the traffic.


books



Again the Ramblas, people buying red roses for the ladies! It was actually a nice spring day but cloudy. People were dressed way too warm!

flowers



And last, but not least: the birthday cake! Layered, with fresh strawberries, thick chocolate frosting and a wonderful decoration! It was such a fun birthday celebration, my friend looked gorgeous, believe me , even if I am not sharing pictures of her!

  4. Wow! What a cake!

    (however, I'm a firm believer that fruit and dessert are two separate courses! Ha.)

  7. Yes, thanks, I had a great time!and the cake was excellent, although I only tried a bit from Mr.Mar's dessert!

    coffee addict - I didn't have my piece but I am sure somebody else took care of it, lol!

    Carmen - my notion of dessert is associated with tons of calories! something special and yummy. I don't consider fruit an appropiate dessert! I agree with you!

    Expat Traveler - this was an special open market, just for the day. Taking place all over the city.
