Barcelona- La Ramla

leave a comment »

La Ramla is a famous street located in central of Barcelona, very popular among both tourist and the local people. This 1.2 km street is very well known among the tourist due to the rare and amazing  streets performers that i, myself never seen such street performers like that. Along the street you can find a lot of souvenir shops with a reasonable price, but be careful, because this street is one of the prime place for pickpockets. Basicly, you can find anything here.

I did not get the chance to shot all the streets performers because it’s getting dark ( i arrived here like about at 17:00), so i enjoyed the performance myself. So here are a few pictures of them. At that night, i saw a street performer who dress up like a tree!!It’s really amazing….the full dress was in green and moved slowly like it’s being blown by the wind. At the same night, that’s the first time i went to a market which full of fresh meals and fruits!!Once you see the fruits, it’s like you want to eat all of them there… seriously. Boqueria Market ……….

Barcelona

Barcelona, a well known City in Europe and really famous as one of the most attractive tourist attraction in Europe, famous because of their legendary architect Antoni Gaudi who design Park Guell, Sagrada Familia and some other odd, creative i admit and cool architecture buildings around here. And of course not forgotten, Barcelona is also famous with the Football Club of Barcelona. Actually, there are so many place you can go here, like Olympic Stadium, Poble Espanyol, Torre Agbar, The Montserrat and others.

I was there in Barcelona on a 2weeks trip around Spain and Portugal last December 09 with a group of 5 people including me. Our destinations were Barcelona-Madrid-Granada-Cordoba-Sevilla-Lisbon-Porto. In the next post, i would like to share my stories and experiences during the whole trip, starting from Barcelona.

For some general informations, you really need to be careful when you travel in Barcelona or Spain, i mean..REALLY REALLY careful because there are many, i would say, professional pickpockets around here, it’s like a JOB for the people here. When we were just arrived to our  hotel in Barcelona, the owner (boss) himself warn us to be careful here, don’t put your wallet in the back pocket but put it in front or in your jacket’s pocket, don’t try to show off your stuffs like cameras, video-cameras and mobile phone because those are the things that catch their attention, most importantly,don’t even dare to walk alone!!!walk in group instead. Luckily for us, nothing bad happen to us for the whole trip. For a tourist, you don’t need to worry about language barrier here because they can speak and understand English well. That’s about the people in Barcelona and about the foods, for Muslims, i think there is no problem to find halal food here (there are a lot of  Halal Shop along the La Ramla Street). About the public transport, the Metro System is enough to get you around the city, the metro trains are really punctual, fast, effective and cheap.

About the picture above, it’s just a picture of a streets in Barcelona, near the area of  Palaca Catalunya, La Ramla Street ( i’ll explain about this awesome street later ), and to be exact in front of FC Barcelona Fans Shop. Here was where the beginning of our tour around Barcelona City Centre on the 2nd day of the trip. I personally on purpose, did not want to freeze the movement of the vehicles by increasing the shutter speed, or panning the shot because i think the blur or motion of the cars can give better impact on the picture. About the tone, i use a nostalgic tone to bring up the memories back once i see this picture.

More story come in the next post, have a nice day.
