Street Entertainers, Barcelona
Ramblas is a "must see" and it's also a local custom. I don't know another place in the world like that. Ramblas is about 1,5 km long and it leads from Plaza Catalunya to the harbour. Make your walk on the Ramblas just in the middle, and you are where life is: little merchants, pantomines, tourists, locals, birds, flowers, newspapers. And you see also beautiful palaces and houses on the street.
Well , Barcelona , just as any other big city has his street artist. You'll find most of them at the end of the ramblas. They are a real joy to watch and in the evening mostly little bands come here to play - sometimes with a professial instalation. Since the barcie are happy people they even like to dance..
I liked this artist. He is hilarious. He only makes a lot of noice and spins the dolls..
you wil also meet all kinds of people often from far away countries who try to earn some money by e.g. making music.
It was difficult to call this music, it was some kind of bbbbbbbbbbooooooooooooohhhhhhm , very low tone and little variation.
One day I will remember the name and let you know....
He was a New Zealander at the entrance of the famous Parc de Guëll (architect: Antoni GAUDI)
All up and down La Rambla, you will find street performers. I actually found some of them amusing...in one day I saw Cleopatra, a bronze soldier, a dog dressed up like a clown, and and a kitten in a shopping cart. Okay, that last one went with a homeless guy, but seriously now....I kept pointing them out to my friend, but apparently the local thing to do is ignore them. Everyone just kept on walking by!
This is another picture taken at Las Ramblas,here you can see a musician with his small and very funny dressed dog!.
