Gaudi/Barcelona/Two of my favorite things

I love Barcelona. It was a love story from the beginning. Everything Spanish draws me, as it is partially my roots, here in Tampa. We have Spanish, Cuban, Italian and a whole bunch of other folks. But Ybor city and West Tampa were a strong influence. So when I went to Barcelona it was a bit like coming home. They I saw Gaudi's architecture and was awed beyond belief. How could someone make hard rectangular concrete...look soft, dripping, melting , curved and sensual? Gaudi was a master. Someday I hope to be there again on Los Rambles having cafe con leche!
