Dear Tummy,

Whenever I travel, I always try to visit the local food markets for the following reasons. First, it’s a place where you encounter an explosion of colors, smell, shapes and taste that makes it such a sensual experience. Second, you get to see what locals  eat and how they buy their food, as well as how they interact with one another between customer and the shop owners. Third, it’s a great place to find fresh food, and cheap eats. Luckily, in Barcelona there are many many food markets. La Boqueria is one of the most famous ones in town, and it happens to be very close to the IES center. Although I’d say that it’s a little touristy, it’s still a good place to do all that I’ve mentioned. I have yet to discover more local markets in my neighborhood!
