Spain 2008 (Part 3)

Desktop holiday for you... European Edition - Spain (Part 3)....

More of Gaudi's art! - this time at the very unique Guell Park.... :)

- Beautiful day with bright blue skies:
Branches reaching up towards the blue sky...

- Artists selling stuff in some part of the park:
Open air art gallery? :)...

- Some people were walking their pets - Look, a ferret! :)
Little feet padding along...

- Some buildings were fairly normal....:
Pastel pink walls...

- ... While some other buildings were quite outlandish:
Looks strange but interesting...

- Beautiful mosaic in the main square area:
No 2 exactly the same (I think)...

- The famous Happy lizard/ dinosaur of Guell Park:

Perched for all to see...

- Smile!:
:D


If you were wondering:
Park Güell is a garden complex that was the idea Count Eusebi Güell... It is situated on the hill of el Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain... designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí".
(According to Wikipedia)

That's all I have for my Spain photos. Hope you enjoyed reminiscing with me. :)
(Have to save up so that I can go back one day - there's so much more to see, and eat!)

On another note, (if I'm not wrong) today is the first day of bulan Puasa (Fasting month).... so, I just want to take a moment to wish my Muslim friends out there:
Selamat Berpuasa! (Happy Fasting!)
(You are so strong! I don't know how you do it - it's really quite amazing....)


In awe,
J
