The best experiences when traveling come when you go off the road and get lost in those offstream alleys, backyards and tiny squares full of life away from the large facades prefabricated to dazzle novices.
That’s how you avoid eating the dyed rice with a lonely shrimp they call paella and drinking their lousy on tap wine with siphon water they call sangria in one of those “restaurants” in Ramblas, and bump into real jewels like Salterio.
Yes, when looking for your way through across the weaving warp of the Gothic quarter, once in the back of the Palau de la Generalitat, the smell of incense, the wide range of teas, the really tasty pita sardos in any of their varieties and the charming music will drag you into the atmosphere of an old tea shop and make you forget the world is full of problems.
Precisely, the bar is treasured hidden behind that palace in which politicians struggle to secure their welfare in order to perpetuate themselves “representing” simple pedestrians like us throughout eternity to try to return the favor for their wealth by making our pitiful fate a little less wretched.
