meat market barça style

Almost forgot to mention the Champañeria, or what I prefer to call the Best Place to Eat a Sausage and Cop a Feel. Suxata and Sheila decided to show us this Barça tradition. Basically for very, very cheap, you can buy a bottle of pink Cava, and get two tapas, which usually include a sausage sandwich, or a ham sandwich. The place looks like a butcher shop, sausages and ham thighs hanging from the ceiling. It's packed like a tin of sardines by 7 pm, with locals and tourists alike, dripping pink drinks all over the place every time someone tries to squeeze through. One guy had his hand on Suxata's behind for a while (obviously she was enjoying the experience). When we were leaving, someone actually pinched my butt. Not an ambiguous brushing, but an actual pinch. So for a good time, hit the Champañeria (that's what Sheila calls it, don't know if it's the official name).

Did you go to the Boqueria?

We went to the Boqueria, I believe I wrote about it in a previous entry. I also went to Parc Guell. Very cool! Wish I had more time in Barcelona, but am thrilled to finally be back in Paris!

Hmm... butt pinching... I pinched someone's butt a while back, and he requested that I keep that attention to grabs as pinches are painful. I have noticed that my butt gets grabbed not pinched. So, here's a question: while butt pinching is the cliche, has it gone out of style for grabbing?

Alexei likes to grab my butt every time we walk up a staircase. I don't mind this idiosyncracy of his!
