Giddy over Gaudi

My second day in Barcelona was dedicated to Antoni Gaudi, plus some other buildings of the same importance and beauty. His works are scattered all around the city. I think the transportation and tourism authorities conspired in commissioning and arranging the layout of his work in Barna (Catalan for Barcelona). Visiting his masterpieces needs the extensive use of the transportation system of the city. It would take some map-reading skills, Metro-saviness, and a lot of leg power to get around. By this time, I already have two maps courtesy of the Informacion center and my hostel and am also getting the hang of taking the Metro.
