The best thing about being in a foreign country, is those little places you find, quite by accident and often down a little back street. This bar was one such place, situated in the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, it was dimly lit, a little bit shabby and very cosy with lots of character. Perfect for a late afternoon cocktail. Just a great pity I don't remember the name to share with you.

Ok, one day I need you to shoot me because your pix are ALWAYS amazing...so inviting, alluring; they tell a story better than any of my fluffy words ever could.

That looks like one tasty beverage, there, btw. Save some for the rest of us next time ;-)
