|Scrambled Emu anyone?|
There was going to be a point where we would brave the tourists and head to La Rambla. Of course, this being mid-July meant that it was going to be busy. I first visited La Rambla back in my teenage years, and I remember birds. Lots and lots of birds. Sadly, this is no longer the case as many of those bird markets have been overtaken with coffee and patisserie stands, with just one or two remaining.
There is much to see and do off La Rambla and we visited twice over the week to spend time in the neighbourhoods around it (more of that to come). For me, the main attraction was La Boqueria, which during mid-morning, is filled to the rafters with tourists (and pickpockets) queueing right out onto the street. Of course this isn't an enjoyable way to experience a market, so we headed there early one evening, where we could move freely and look at all the produce on offer without wanting to stab anyone in the eye.
