|Sapna & Anna @ Kokua Shoes|
You may have noticed that I didn't blog about my 30th birthday in January (strange?!) The truth is, Carly, Marina (friends from my PhD course) and I tried to go out for gelato. Simple enough, you'd think, but the place that was recommended to me (as well as every other one) was closed that night!!! It was also closed the day after!
Yesterday, though, Anna and I found it open and waiting for us --- GELAAATI! -- the best gelato I have ever had. It tastes like Italy. You can feel every flavour in your mouth...creamy and delicious. Definitely check out this Italian gelato place in the Gothic quarter.

Here's Anna with my veggie tapas - tortilla de patatas and goat cheese and veggie spread!
Dessert and shoe shopping before dinner? Why not?! Anna introduced me to Kokua, a store that only sells ballerina flats! They are all handmade in Barcelona - and beautiful. It really defines the Barcelona's style --- beautiful shoes, but only if they're comfortable! I have seen very few people wandering the streets in high heels. I bought two pairs (oops!!)

We ended the night with wine (as always!) at Anna's place, since it's nearby. What a beautiful night in a beautiful city with a beautiful friend ... I really love my life here! (Now off to work on that PhD I came here for ;)
