A reminder of time

The streets of Barcelona are a mix of Time and cultures. Almost every structure looks like it was taken out of an illustrated history book, but decorated with modern lights, bright signs and picturesque establishments. You can take a stroll down a medieval looking alley filled with tattoo shops, bubble tea stores and vegan restaurants.

Every time I walk through these street I can’t help to wonder how did they look like way back when. Horses? Women with big-lace dresses? Did they lived there? In the same building with the sex shop or the seeds bank?

Every street and every corner of this city is a reminder of the passing of time.
