... and lots of very inviting looking food. It was difficult to decide what to eat!
Whilst deciding, we snacked on prawn skewers
After finally deciding on some food, we took it all to a little town square nearby which had this intriguing metal sculpture. I have no idea what it was, but it made for some good artsy photos:
As it was swelteringly hot, we ate salad and fresh melon:
Afterwards, we found Barcelona cathedral
Which has a garden - complete with orange trees and geese(!) - right in the centre of it
It was like no cathedral I'd ever seen before
The illuminations cast on the floor were beautiful
We made a well deserved pit stop for some freshly squeezed orange juice
And then made our way to a chocolate museum where even the tickets were chocolate
It was a really interesting museum as not only did you learn about the origins of chocolate, but they also had lots of sculptures made of the stuff. Including Barcelona's very own Sagrada Familia:
They even had a little café where you could purchase hot chocolate
Unlike other hot chocolates, this had a very thick consistency. The Spaniards like it this way as they can dip things like churros into it. By the time it got to the table, the top had set so I had to crack it open with a spoon! A spoon is essential with this type of hot chocolate:
We made our way to the beach and port just as the sun was setting
We ate tapas - a meat feast of epic proportions - at one of the many food places near to the port and washed it all down with cava based sangria. Personally I still prefer a standard non-fizzy sangria
When they brought out the bill, they also brought out cake and shots for us. To this day, I still have no idea what drink this was but it smelt like detergent. And it didn't taste much better either. The cake was deliciously more ish. I some how managed to eat the lot... oops!
Coming soon: Barcelona - day three!
