Barcelona 1, On Bikes - You may get closer to pedestrians and other vehicles than you like. Still recommended.
Barcelona 2, On Segways, On Food, and On Our Own - Segways are fantastic. So is Disfrutar.
Barcelona 3, On Gaudi and Can Sole - Fun problems. The walking tour needs adjustment. The eating at Can Sole is great but unlike other places you'll need your Spanish ready.
Barcelona 4, On a Mountain - You should take the hike. You should resist the cheese.
Barcelona X, On Supermercats in Barcelona - Okay, not a brilliant observation.
Barcelona 5, On Archaeology, On Travel - An unexpected find, wonderful if you like getting down into history at a personal level.
Barcelona Z, On Systems Analysis and People - Systems can be complicated and wonderful. People are better.
