Good Evening Barcelona, Spain

When the sun starts to set, the real Barcelona comes out.  We were lucky enough to see a demonstration of Barcelona’s native dance, the Sardana, complete with full band.  People of all ages flood the square and join in the dance which goes on for hours.  With the temperature dropping to a comfortable 82 degrees with little humidity, it is a great time for fun and fellowship.  The dancers are very open and anyone can join in the dance, which has participants in a circle joined by their hands.  And remember, this its not even Saturday night!

Once the sun sets, the rooftop of the hotel provides a great place to view the city.
