Lunch and more Gaudi

While in the neighborhood of the Archaeology Museum, we had an excellent lunch at a place called La Gordita. We had the menu of the day, which included this awesome seafood soup. Yes, that is a lobster head in my soup.
We then went back and toured Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera (the quarry), a gaudi building about 7 blocks north of our hotel. It is a fairly large apartment building. Here is the exterior.
And here is a close up of one of the awesome balconies.

Some of the roof decoration.

And a general view of the roof.
It was a very cool building, and gave a good overview of the progression of Gaudi's work. You also goot to go through one of the apartments in the building. They were very cool, very open and airy.
