“Barcelonaaaa!” The old man standing in the passage outside La Boqueria market cried. “Barcelonaaaaa!” At his feet, small beaded trinkets lay for sale. I walked in, a cool breeze tickling my shoulders which had started to freckle from the warm Mediterranean sunshine. Something was cooking inside; a smell of meat frying suddenly attacked my nostrils. I was hungry. Like a dog on a trail, I followed the scent until I found a stall cooking sausages. I gobbled up the wonderful meat with a bread bun, the grease sliding down my fingers. Time for dessert. Standing opposite each other, a fruit stall and a chocolate one. Which to choose? The fruit looked like something out of an old video game, piled high and ripe for collection. They sold frozen juices too, so I picked a bright mauve one, which turned out to be ice-cold watermelon. Some chocolate for later; imagine my joy when I saw orange segments covered in chocolate. The stallholder demanded money in rapid Catalan, before beginning to censure the man with her furious words. I paid up, and walked on.
