Ah yes, we're still being eager beavers and doing the skate tourist deal but we've been getting busier and actually shooting some photos. I'm not too sure what we're going to do next month without Matt here, he's always the one to wake us up, drag us out of bed and get us to go skating before noon. Since we've actually been skating spots other than Macba and Parallel we've also been meeting some new skate buddies and getting casual pro sightings - it's pretty tight! I can't tell you whether or not these updates are going to become consistent so sit tight.
This rail was a ton of fun. Byron,

We finally made it to Barcelona! Bad weather, cancelled flights, getting switched to different planes and lost luggage made one hell of a journey getting here. That airplane food didn't help either.
But the city...ah yes, the city. The architecture is like no other place I've seen. To me, it seems like this entire city was made with a skateboarder in mind. Lightly-cracked sidewalk blocks so your wheels clicked, granite everything and perfect ledges everywhere really made all of us ask, "Why does this exist?!" Our new homie Pedro has been showing us around and even hooked us up with a spot book he made. What is normal to him has been blowing our minds with every other push through the city, I honestly mean it. So far we're just "skate tourists" in this city while Pedro shows us around. Soon enough we will be getting down to business...if you know what I mean.
Is your mind blown yet?
