Barcelona is a wonder. Gaudi! Ferran Adria! Santiago Ramon y Cajal! That weird bar where woodland fairies and nymphs hang out. But a friend of mine who has spent a lot of time in Spain – a friend who actually speaks Catalan – explained a while back that AirBnB had started operating in really quiet neighborhoods, filling them with people on stag dos and whatnot. The thing about Barcelona that’s so wonderful, I guess, is that it’s completely and utterly itself. I want it to stay that way.
