With Ricki Lake, who we spotted several times and finally had our picture taken with. She was such a sweetheart! And doesn't she look absolutely FAB??!


På vores næstsidste dag i Barcelona, ville vi se Park Güell og Barrí Gotic. Park Güell er en fredet park, designet af Gaudi for sin ven Güell. Meningen med den var oprindeligt, at det skulle være et beboelsesområde for velhavende borgere, som ønskede at undslippe Barcelonas kaos tilbage i starten af 1900-tallet. Der skulle have været 60 huse, men projektet endte med kun et par få, da ingen købte sig ind i området. Det er også en meget speciel verden, Gaudi har opbygget. Men utrolig smuk og fascinerende! Og så mødte vi jo lige dronningen af 90'er-talkshows: ms. Ricki Lake! Hun var utrolig sød at snakke med og virkelig smuk.
Barrí Gotic er Barcelonas ældste bydel. Her er middelalderbygninger, en masse kirker og store pladser. Vi så bl.a det gamle kongepalads, hvor Columbus blev slået til ridder af dronning Isabella af Spanien i det 15. århundrede. Historiens vingesus var berusende!

On our second to last day, we wanted to see Parc Güell and Barrí Gotic. Parc Güell is a parc designed by Gaudi for his friend Güell. It was meant to be a housing area for wealthy citizens, who wanted to escape the chaos of Barcelona. But instead of the planned 60 houses, the project was shut down after constructing only a few. No one was buying into it. It is a quirky and extreme world Gaudi has created, but extremely beautiful and fascinating! Oh, and we ran into ms. Ricki Lake, queen of 90's talkshows. She was so nice and down to earth. Isn't she stunning, too? 
Barrí Gotic is the oldest part of Barcelona. There are medieval buildings, churches and grand squares. For instance, we saw the old royal Palace, where Columbus was knighted by Queen Isabella of Spain back in the 15. century. The history of this city is breathtaking!
