Bars and Galleries and Cute little Turkish Girls

The quarter we stayed in was very happily jam packed with galleries and never ending alley ways - perfect for getting lost and then getting found again. At the end of "La Ramblas", Barcelona's justly famous promenade lies a suitably ancient a phallic tribute to Christopher Columbus who for having the audacity to go searching for a more auspicious route to India only to find that nowhere place North America was granted the enormous privilege of having a truly grandiose column erected in his honour (tee hee). Not sure what the Lions signify though I suppose if they were god enough for Nelson then Columbus ought to have his four lions as well.
