From “The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria”, often simply referred to as La Boqueria to Espai Sucre which serves you the most gastronomical experience for a sweet tooth lover, I am remembering my past travels to Spain. Spaniards are food lovers! Experience this for yourselves. Every corner is filled with sidewalk cafes and restaurants and this is the place where they like to gather. Young and old alike enjoy conversation and spirits until the wee hours of the evening.

Some day I hope to go back to this place where I learned not just what I love about Catalan and it’s many flavors, but also because it was a time when I was experimenting with who I was. I could not imagine a time and place of any other for this experience.

Today I am remembering it: beaches, boquerones, boats, La Sagrada Familia, Paseo de Gracia, Desigual, tapas, tapas, tapas…………..

I have not deciphered yet what changed in me or how I wanted to change, but somehow it did. It was a type of redemption or some sort of spiritual awakening. I was not there just to explore the sights, but it was a place where I believe that only God had could have sent me. Wow!!! Did I really say that!!! I am at least going to fake sleepiness and continue this tomorrow…..Good night!!
