This week, I’m back in my favorite city, so I wanted to share a photo that might help explain why I can’t stay away from Barcelona.
This is the inscription at the foot of the Font de Canaletes, a fancy fountain at the top of Las Ramblas, the most famous street in Barcelona. It’s not just pretty; it also has supposed magical powers. Here’s my rough translation of it:
“If you drink the water
From the Fountain of Canaletes
You will always be
In love with Barcelona.
And no matter how far you go,
You’ll always return.”
You might be wondering – did I drink from the Font de Canaletes? Well, I’m back in Barcelona, aren’t I?
