I am leaving tomorrow for Barcelona where I will meet up with two adult daughters. We are very excited about this girls' trip.
A few last minute questions:
1. Dinner for Thursday evening: We are staying at Hotel Inglaterra at Carrer de Pelai 14, near Placa Catalunya. Any thoughts for a moderately priced dinner close by? Considering our jet lag, I'm hoping to find a place that might be open before 8PM, so that we can get back to the hotel and get a good night's sleep prior a full day of sight seeing the next day. One thought is to take a cab to Restaurant 7 Portes (not close to the hotel, but we'd get to see the harbor area) which seems to be open from 1PM. Would it be easy to find a cab to get us back to the hotel from there?
We could also walk to Ciudad Conda for tapas.
2. We are planning to go to the National Museum of Catalan Art on Friday afternoon. I'd like to get tickets for the the 7:30 Flemenco show at Tablao de Carmen. Is it an easy walk from the museum to Tablao? We will just be doing drinks at the show, so are there places along the way where we could get a bit to eat? Also wondering about cab availability after the show--
3. I have read so many postings about pickpocketing and scams in Spain, and I am arriving well prepared with a shoulder pocketbook and a wallet with a chain that clips inside the purse. If it isn't pouring rain, I am planning to use the Aeroport bus to Universtat. Do I need to worry about zealously watching my luggage, which I assume will be placed under the bus? Or is my best bet just to take a cab from the airport?
I've been reading the Barcelona forum over the past weeks, and appreciate all the expert guidance offered! Thanks to all--
