1. It now feels strange to have a beer alone.
Every time I’d go to a bar and sit by myself, I’d end up invited into a group of ten people talking about FCB, music or the Sunday electric brunch at Montjuic. People here are so unbelievably friendly and sociable, that sitting alone is much harder than it is to make friends. The beauty of Barcelona is the ridiculous diversity of its characters — from a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who speaks perfect Catalan, to a Masters student in politics from Jerusalem and a filmmaker from Sweden — company there was extremely interesting.
