El Raval, Barcelona

~
Well, España has been quite an experience. It is now two months since we’ve been here. We have a great apartment in El Raval, one of three barrios in an area called, Ciutat Vella, in the heart of old Barcelona.


This is the view from our window looking 
down the street in both directions.

Though our street may look narrow, 
there are narrower ones.

It is right across the street from El Indio,
a famous dry goods store from the late 1800’s
(yep, it was raining in June) . . .

The streets are busy by day . . .
