Street art in BCN

As usual, I find myself documenting the graffiti here in Barcelona. We've seen some really interesting ones in the past two days. The first one of the woman with the yellow face is by an artist named C215 from Paris, who specializes in stencils - The stencil of the two girls is signed by Alice and the one of the butterfly is signed by Nina, but I can't find any info about the others.

I'm visiting Barcelona for about a week with my parents, M and my sister and her boyfriend! We're celebrating my parents' 40th wedding anniversary and my 1st wedding anniversary with M.
It's just too beautiful to keep to myself, so hopefully I'll be able to share some of it with you here.

We got in this morning and have already enjoyed some tapas and wine. I decided to attempt to order our meal in Spanish, which went well except for the fact that I ordered anchovies in vinaigrette instead of artichokes in vinaigrette!

Now we're settling into the apartment we rented for the week - here's a pic of the view from the room that M and I are sharing. There is a courtyard below us with many potted plants and brightly colored walls, and people are hanging their laundry out to dry across the way.

Hasta luego!
