Recently visited Barcelona to visit with our daughter who is attending University

Had a great visit and loved the city

One morning at 10 am my wife and I were walking 4 blocks east of Passeo de Gracia on Calle Valencia (a toney neighbourhood) when we were splattered with a brownish liquid from behind or above.A well dressed middle aged man emerged from an apartment building and offered to help us clean our clothes in his apartment-I declined his kind offer which was thoughtfully offered several times-I was a bit suspicious informing him that our hotel was close by and angrily shuffled off

Within two minutes as I was returning to the hotel three well turned out individuals asked for directions in French producing a map suggesting they were lost-I obliged and they were off

Having read some of the stories you have posted I am convinced that we were targets and happily escaped being victimised Having read in the guide books to be wary of pickpockets in Barcelona I purchased and wore a concealed cloth wallet worn under my pants with one credit card and a some cash
