barcelona 1

Due to them a) forgetting what day of the week it was, and b) finding the train was fully booked; Tammy and Annie were not able to meet me in Barcelona as planned.  This left me with a problem - how to survive for 24 hours in a city when you don't speak a word of Spamish or Catalan. The answer was simple... find an Iriah bar!  

So I did.  Strolling along La Rambla - where you can see such delights as kermit-playing-a-miniature-piano and people-dancing-for-money.

Anyway, a suitable bar was located and I settled down with a Guinness.  Coincidentally, that day was the final of the All-Ireland Hurling Championship. - and the bar had its fair quota of Cork fans.  Unfortunately for them Kilkenny beat Cork 1-14 to 1-11 - but mere defeat does not stand in the way of having a good time and a good drink.  (As it turned out, over the next few days I found no less than 4 Irish bars - and there are probably lots more.)
