Ah, So That's How That Happens!


I recently got the chance to visit the city of Barcelona, Spain. Already, it's gotta be one of my favorite places ever. From the beautiful beaches, to the amazing architecture, to the fantastic food they call tapas, I really felt at home there. Maybe it's cuz I grew up in San Diego and Barcelona is like San Diego on steroids with a lot more of a history. They also had one of the craziest venues for sports that I've ever been to called Camp Nou, home to FC Barcelona, the world-famous football club. The stadium is massive and it's smack dab in the middle of the city. With all the beautiful things to behold in Barcelona, you'd think I'd post some awesome pics right?? Haha, not so fast mi amigos! While the 14th century fort atop the hill was pretty amazing and had the best view of the city, I was more captivated by what was happening on the dock down below. After watching the film Cars a million times, something always puzzled me. How were all those cars actually "born"?? Well, the answer my friends is circled down below. This was taken at about 8 in the morning. They were still 'doing it' at about 7 at night. In Europe, I guess they're a little less shy and a bit more open than we are in the states. Well, I guess I have a lot to learn. It's gonna be one interesting journey.

i slept in your cube last night. i think i may have wet myself while i was sitting at your desk as well. it probably won't smell or anything when you get back.

Hey Eric,
Glad to hear you're having a good trip so far! Looking forward to the next post, although I don't know how you're going to top the car porn picture!

Who said truck love isn't beautiful? You see one 14th century fort you've seen them all, but it's a rare opportunity to catch trucks mating in broad daylight.
Oh and your cube does smell a little now but it's a "good" pee smell.

Excellent point steve! "car porn", as stacey calls it, is a rare sight and I had every right to be fascinated, not out of the peverseness of it, but by the fact that you just don't see it every day.

John, I'm okay with you peeing all over my cube. I think it's a right every VP has in their contract. At least I wasn't in there while you did it. Is that why Rich, Ron, and Stephane smell like that? :)

is this what a "car show" is in europe? this is a great concept for a backstory to how Mater came to be. I'll start pitching it, so by the time you get back, you'll have something on your plate.

Man Gabriel, you are a genius!! Can we incorporate some 'blacklight' action on this one. That's innovative, right??
