"Do Over" Day in Barcelona

Spending  a week in Barcelona is a gift on many levels. Aside from basking in seven days and nights of magic, we don't feel rushed to get around or to see everything, and we can revisit sights we love.

So today, we decided to "re-do" Wednesday's beach and biking day, with a quick jaunt into the Barri Gotic for churros and chocolate at another famous xocolateria. To make it a little more interesting, we took a trip on the funicular up to Montjuic first, then cabbed it to the beach.

Can you tell which of us doesn't like heights?

At Bogatell Beach

At this place, the churros were better than the first churreria,
but the chocolate wasn't as thick and pudding-ish
A real horchata (made from the chufa nut, not rice),
which tastes like a sweet almond milk
