At this time Eve Field began to represent me as an agent. She arranged a contract in Barcelona. It was the first major European city in which I lived. Barcelona is known as one of the most cosmopolitan of European cities. This nocturnal city starts to come alive at midnight and people fiesta until 6:00 in the morning. I think that the reason Spaniards have siesta between 3:00-5:00 is so they can be awake all night. Siesta is also the time that most of the businesses close down, but then are open until 7:00 p.m. I lived 200 meters from one of the biggest futbol stadiums in the Europe, FC Barcelona. The fans are out of control. They are very passionate about futbol and they let people know this.
Barcelona is famous for its architectural buildings around the city. Gaudi, a famous modernist artist created amazing buildings, such as, Batllo House, Mila House (also known as La Pedrera) and Guell Park. Walking around town admiring buildings filled many afternoons there. Sometime I would go to the famous tourist street, La Rambla for paella and wine. La Rambla has a unique atmosphere with its shops, artists and entertainment along the sidewalk.
