A 4**** hotel/apartment complex has recently opened in Rambla de Raval which, together with the visitors that the film will pull in will, I am sure, begin to change the character of the area for good. Now would be a good time to visit Raval so you can remember it as it was before tha money moved in...
Between you and Woody, I'm sure there's a lot more curiosity and interest to visit Barcelona. Leslie is quite taken with the artisitic orientation the city seems to offer. I think she's at least equally as interested in the Bardem orientation Barcelona may offer
