We put our Catalan to the test yesterday by going to see Totoro on the big screen last night. The CaixaForum have a few Studio ghibli movies on show as part of their Japonism exhibition so it costs us a whole $2 each :)
It was an awesome lecture hall set up and it was good to see so many family with young kids aswell as couples and judging by people's reactions to the movie, a lot of people seeing it for the first time! which surprised me as the film is nearly 25 years old but it was nice to hear the kids all giggle at the antics on screen.
so a good night was had for the start of our holidays - everything shuts down really for august here as its very humid and hot (28c at midnight!) so we're going to be finding lots of cool things in barcelona - more of the hidden and odd bits so expect photos.
