If you know Barcelona well and have suggestions for a first-time visitor, or if you have contacts there, I’d love to hear from you! I’ll be flying there on Friday for a short week. I’ll be busy two days for work, but the rest of the time should be mine. Business trips are good!
Extra question: should I plan to do some rollerblading over there, or forget about it?

Lucky you, nice city. Unfortunately I don’t have any good advice for you. Just don’t spent too much time around the Olympic harbour, it is just for tourists.
There are many nice places — and boulevards are really large (so you can do some rollerblading). In my advices, nothing really original : I really like the atmosphere of the Barrio Gothic (one of the old districts), also crowded with tourists. The Guell Park is a must-see (no rollerblades allowed, and it’s very high). If you like modern art, the Macba is the place to go , they have jewels : I especially enjoyed a twenty minutes movie shot by Samuel Beckett and featuring Buster Keaton (!!!). Incredible and beautifully presented. Otherwise, just walk at night, and feel the soul of this city (choose the bars frequented by old people to take a drink). As a post-scriptum, I have a request, written in French in this post : http://alexis.drogoul.free.fr/carnet/index.php?entry=/perso/Vieux49047.txt (the metro station is Sant Anton, and the man was sitting approx. 30m from the station).
c’est quoi une caà±a ?
et tu avais un coin sympa où loger? J’ai toujours pas de logement, alors tuyaux volontiers 🙂
Une caà±a c’est la bière pression (soit du coin, assez légère, soit, comme partout ailleurs dans le monde, une Heineken 🙂
Pour le logement, tu y es le WE ? Dans ce cas-la, je continue par mail (j’ai un plan possible, mais je n’ai pas envie qu’il soit archivé sur ton site !!!!) 🙂
I’m off tomorrow morning, so you probably won’t hear much from me during the next week or so. I’ll deal with e-mail when I come back, unless I’m really bored over there and decide to spend my time in Internet cafés…
Have a nice week everyone!
