Street Entertainers Tips (19)

Ramblas

When I saw this guy, I thought: Great clothes, take a pic. I took my pic very fast, knowing, that not all the pantomimes wanted to be on a photo without any money. But, he noticed me taking a pic.... What to do? He ran fast to me and looked very very angry. He told me very polite that he want to have a coin, because it's his job being there as a pantomime. But I really didn't have any money. I only wanted to take nice shots.... But where was my husband? Where the girls? I didn't see him, I didn't see the girlies. ... Oh dear... I explained him that I had no money, it was the truth and told him to bring later some coins.
Unfortunately he was gone when I came back in the evening. So if you see them, say thank you to him and don't forget a coin!
Sorry boy, next time I will have some money for you! For sure

Ramblas

Is it a statue or a pantomine? You always have to answer this question. And the answer is: Take some coins, put it in the box and wait what will happen. Perhaps the statue begins to move - always a great surprise and fun.

Las Ramblas

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.

free theater

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..

THANKS TO THE FINE CLIMATE....

It was difficult to call this music, it was some kind of bbbbbbbbbbooooooooooooohhhhhhm , very low tone and little variation.

Just keep walking, honey....

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!
