Barcelona Catalonia Plaza 3/29/1954

HH and Jean continue their whirlwind seven hour tour of Barcelona, Spain on Monday, March 29, 1954.
Barcelona Plaza de Cataluña [Catalonia Square]

Card sent to Mrs. N.W. Ballantyne - March 29, 1954
Dearest Mother – 29/3/54
We have about seven hours here.  Hired a taxi and really saw a lot that the ship excursion didn't take the tourists to see.  Now eating in Barcelona restaurant and our first taste of Spanish food.  Get around OK considering our lack of knowledge of foreign languages.  Took subway (1.25¢) and street car (1.5¢) here and really see the people.  Baby girls with pierced ears, saw two bull rings, orange and lemon trees in the heart of  the city. Please save these cards for us.  All our love, Jean and Harold
