At night from my apartment I can see a few lights shining high into the sky. I wondered was I still in Vegas? Is that the Luxor? So I followed the lights and they led me to Plaza de Espana, one of the city’s biggest squares. It even has two towers at the beginning called “The Venetian Towers.” Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good pictures of them so just check them out here.
As I made my way towards the lights, I noticed a huge fountain with a large crowd gathered all around. Was I at the Bellagio? So I stayed for the show, and I was definitely not at the Bellagio. This fountain show lasted almost an hour and literally blew the Bellagio’s show out of the water.
Here are some clips:
I had to pay tribute to victims of the attack last week. So I visited Las Ramblas located in the Gothic Quarter. Las Ramblas is a street with a pedestrian walkway in the middle with bars/restaurants, shops etc. This is where the truck attack happened.
Some pictures from the Gothic Quarter…
I would often see these signs hanging from balconies that say “Si.” My roommate explained to me that there was a movement for the Catalonia region (where Barcelona is located) to separate from Spain. This was the first building I saw with so many signs together.
On my way back to Vegas now. Probably one more blog to follow, so check back soon! I hope everyone is running good on and off the felt!
