Barcelona second stop: El raval

This is my now-favourite district: the cleaning is not — yet? — completed here.

Here you can still see the city as it once was. It seems that all the people I used to see in bars and streets have moved here. I’m in a bar surrounded by movie-like characters(?) and by the flavours — and smells — of the eighties. It’s early afternoon, and the television is on “La Ruleta de la Suerte” with all of the customers trying to guess the words at a very loud voice. Priceless!

A small advice: all the stuff that is not-so-turist-shaped is already doomed. Hurry up!
