As you guys may have guessed I am in Barcelona for a few days.
Today was quite a busy day. Headed down to the famous park Guell. This park is an open space where the architect gaudi was free to go a little mad and design his own back garden. He built a house which should be in a fairy tale. All the seats are covered in mosaic designs which are beautifully finished and are surprisingly ergonomically supportive.
There were a few street performers which to be perfectly honest added to the whole experience. It built up a relaxed atmosphere so you felt that this is a place you can come and let time pass you by as you stand and admire art.
After that, I was lucky enough to get a ticket to watch Barcelona v Sevilla. This is my first experience in a stadium so large.
My first thoughts when climbing to my seat is this stadium is pure insanity. The amount of people that are seated are around 95,000. Even though I was a cheapskate and got the cheapest ticket I managed to watch the game perfectly fine. Maybe not seeing blades of grass being sheared when a defender goes in for a tackle but able to watch without distraction.
Lets just say the game didn’t end as i expected. would have loved to see a goal or two but in the end had to be satisfied with a saved penalty from Messi and two red cards ( for the Sevilla team).
it looked like Messi wasn’t on top form giving away some simple passes but every so often during the match, his magic seems to start firing up and the history of the beautiful game is rewritten.
