Happy Easter from Barcelona!

There are two main signs that is is Easter in Barcelona. One, the crowds of people are as densely packed as my luggage and the hotels all bear signs saying "completely full" in three languages. Two, every bakery and candy store window is stuffed with bright feathered cakes and strange objects made out of chocolate.

Barcelona has taken the chocolate egg to a whole new level. Chocolate soccer balls, a chocolate tractor, a white chocolate "Hello Kitty" castle. I've seen it all. But I haven't been tempted to buy any of them yet. Maybe if I see a pair of chocolate rollerblades...
