You can take an elevator to get a good views of the Barcelona and port. And you can image how Christopher Columbus reported to Queen Isabella and Ferdinand about his most famous trip there.

    Sidewalk artists in the buff? Hahha..forbidden over here but I saw an almost exact street busker sitting down and all painted in white last nite..hehhhe. Guess they have copycat performances like these anywhere all over the world.


    iWalk reply on September 9th, 2008 9:33 am:

    It sounds an interesting thing! Copying the performances and spreading them to every corner of the world by manpower.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad
    and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
