Monste was heading to visit some family for the weekend so she offered us her car to visit Barcelona. Barcelona is about 2 hours from OS de Balaguer. We jumped at the chance to check out a new place. I wish we would of stayed the night because we barely scratched the surface. We arrived just in time for lunch. We decide to go to Obamas, feeling a little homesick. The kids got American style food and Sean got a burrito. After lunch, we headed down La Rambla.
Of course we couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out another local market. The Mercado de La Boqueria was a crazy flurry of action. We tried a few different juices and grab some ice cream while we walked around. There were fish markets, meat markets, fruits, candies.. It was so much fun. The kids loved checking out the local eats, happy to be looking and not eating a few of them.
After the market, we kept heading down La Rambla to the sea. We walked around the docks for a bit and saw a bit of a rowing competition. After an hour we new we would need to head back soon. We were so sad we didn't get a chance to check out any of the local art or churches this town in famous for.
