A few walkabout snaps from a weekend in Barcelona. Wandering through Parque Guell, possibly one of the most amazing parks in Europe in terms of views and the bizarre Gaudi architecture, I was struck by the anti-tourist daubing which littered the park. The Barcelona authorities have decided that this National Park, which until now has always been for the public, is to be commercialised in order to soak up the tourist dollar in and attempt to plump up a bit of state cash. Understandable, given the economic state of the Spain currently. The writing demonstrated the local distaste at this decision, also very much understandable, although there was a slight irony in their decision to graffiti such slogans as “don’t let the tourists destroy our beautiful park” when the very writing itself was doing just that.
