Back in the US of A

Hey guys. I’m back from my European adventure. If you have been wondering, I first visited Paris, France, then Aix en Provence (in the south of France), then stopped by Barcelona, Spain.

The pictures of the McDonald’s, the hip hop store, the night view from the Eiffel Tower, and Shakespeare & Co. were all from Paris. The mountain shot with the crazy sky was from Aix, and the shot of the Williamsburg bar was in El Raval in Barcelona.

Some interesting things that happened on my journey: The French rail and metro workers decided to go on strike last Wed, but luckily I left from Paris to Aix on Sunday, and then friends in Aix were able to hook me up with a bus (Eurolines) from Aix to Barcleona.

Then I got caught in an illegal anti-Nazi/anti-fascist protest/ police scuffle when coming out of a shoe store on the 5th Avenue of Barcelona. Luckily I was unharmed, but there certainly is nothing scarier than being in a foreign country, seeing a barricade of policemen and then hundreds of people running at you. You just start running–not caring to find out what you’re running away from.

I’m still waking up at 5am in the morning, so my body clock is all off. I have much to write about–and I can’t wait to go through my photographs.

All in all I had a wonderful time, but I am glad to be back in the US–where I’m no longer speaking in caveman language. Oh, and I’m looking forward to having an egg sandwich for breakfast!

  1. Ahhhhhhh, I knew there was something french about it, even though it wasn’t Montreal!

    Enjoy the return back home!

  2. …I hope you have better days next time you come to Barcelona …isn’t it funny that I live here and I didn’t know about the protest?
    …5th Avenue ? I guess you mean Passeig de Gràcia or Les Rambles..or maybe La Diagonal… 😉
