After Kendall and Brooks went home, Brian checked into a hostel for his last night there.  Tommy and I went to see Case Vicens and various other sights.   We first went to Casa Vicens - a private home Gaudi built for a tile maker.  As it was a private home, visitation inside was limited and we did not get to see the inside.


One afternoon, we took a break from site seeing and went shopping along La Ramblas.  La Ramblas has a lot of performers and artists around trying to make a buck or two.  We saw a man who had some pretty nice charactures up and decided to give him a try.  We think he did quite a nice job (below).  What do you think?
