Miss Iggy in Barcelona

¿Qué tal, amigos? Summer seems to be over for Euro Iggy, as temperatures in Vienna have considerably dropped, but aside from additional layers of clothes, the memories of her summer vacation in Barcelona keep her warm.

Miss Iggy and the Teatre Lliure

What looks like a grand villa actually houses the Teatre Lliure (Catalan for "free theatre"), one of the most prestigious theatres in Catalonia. This magnificent building used to be the Palace of Agriculture or Palau de l'Agricultura. The 'free theatre' puts on theatre productions, dance and music performances, things Miss Iggy is really fond of.

Other things she likes: the colors of Spain, red and yellow.

This red wine punch was the perfect drink after a long hot summer day. Best accompanied by mouth-watering paella.

Hot & spicy España!

Miss Iggy loved the metro trains in Barcelona! They quickly and efficiently brought her to all the places she wanted to visit. Tip: be prepared to do some stair-climbing and walking at the stations

I bet the Spanish Metro is more pleasant than the NY subways! Hehe.

Love the chili pepper wall decor! Caliente!
