We’re back in Barcelona now, but I want to add un poco mas de Valencia.  What else is lurking down these narrow streets?

All kinds of shops, of course.

Especially antique shops in old town, which is only appropriate.

Also, all sorts of street art, and not just the hi-brow variety.

I love the blend of old and new here.

And some of the street art is extraordinary.

On the street art tour in Barcelona I learned to look for artists with a particular theme that shows up again and again in their work.   This guy was all over town.

Some of these works are so large they would need ladders or scaffording.

I think this one is advertising for a real estate outfit.

But what is this one about?

I don’t recall seeing street art in the USA urging people to vote.

I’ve also never seen a street musician playing a bassoon.

 

These guys from the Valencia Conservatory were very popular, especially with the high school kids in the square.  Mary introduced herself as the mom of a fellow musician.

I was sad to leave Valencia, but we will return.
