    My mom points out you can go from Montjuïc to the natural reserve of Montserrat via a cable car, which we couldn't do because of a massive storm when we were there!

    MMMMM. I've been to Barcelona three times (one for a week, one for a job interview, one as a job trip), so I have a tiny bit of an idea. One, La Rambla, going from Plaça Catalunya to the sea, very touristy zone (if you go next weekend, you might find lots of Barcelona fans celebrating the League title at the Canaletas fountain -which actually is a normal street drinking fountain-). Going down the avenue, you'll find the Boquería market, which is a delightful place to visit (and perhaps buy something, if anything a drink in one of the pubs inside). Going from there through Carrer Ferrán, you can find Plaça Sant Jaume nearby, with the Cathedral, the City Council and the Generalitat building. And if you keep walking to the East, there is the old city, where you can find the Picasso Museum and the Santa María del Mar Church, which is a delight to see.

    There is also the Palau de la Música and the Spanish Village, which is a 20's pocket-version of Spain, including streets and monuments lifted from elsewhere in the country, so tourists could see the entire thing just with a single visit to Barcelona. Also the Columbus statue at the end of the Rambla (it has an elevator inside, so you can go to the top) and the former bullring, which is now a shopping centre- I think that one was in Plaça de Espanya. If you feel like walking through green areas, there is also Montjuïc, featuring a former castle, and the Parc de la Ciutadella, with a zoo and the Catalan Parliament (don't feed the MPs!).

    And, of course, everything Gaudí: Parc Güell, Sagrada Familia, Casa Battló, La Pedrera... you can't miss those.

    So I'm going to Barcelona in just over a week. What should I do? Where should I go (apart from everything Gaudi)? Where should I eat? I know you're from Madrid, but any tips would be most appreciated.

    I just don't want to be blamed for things, is all.

    You could always stop reading it if it upsets you so much.

    Now every time The Economist arrives on my mail, I mentally blame you.

    If "bunch of asterisks" stands for "anuses", then yeah, it's exactly right!

    And that's why punctuation matters.

    Mi papá tiene 47 años = my dad is 47 years old

    Mi papa tiene 47 anos = my potato has 47 *******s

    Please tell me this is true. I found it on Twitter and don't trust Google Translate to tell me otherwise!

    Madrid is 650 metres up from the sea level and we are surrounded by a group of mountains we call "La Sierra". You can see them very clearly in a particularly bright day!

    No need to tell me, I always cringe when a Spanish crew member tries to translate the security advices onboard.

    And yeah, the messages of "British go home!" and so on plastered all over the news are...
