I know that Barcelona, I hear at least, is changing really rapidly. I have not been there since 2015 and it makes me sad when I read some of the articles about what is possibly the over-touristing of the city and how locals are feeling squeezed out by Air BnB and what some people call internationals. I hope to go back soon, yet maybe I will prefer during the low season when the impact of tourism is less pronounced. Going for work in 2015 gave me a totally different view of the city than when I had had gone for purely touristic purposes in the past. I got to pop my head out of friends windows and just watch the street life from a place that was not a hotel, I got to go to food cooperatives and CSAs and cultural centers and schools, and basically get off the beaten path and off the Rambla a bit to enjoy what so many locals are loathe to lose, which is a really beautiful city with a really amazing way of life. Here's to wishing I make it back before 2020 has closed upon us!
