Park Güell

Park Güell is probably one of the most famous (and most photographed) works of Gaudí. We had fun exploring with our good friends Jess and Steve!


There are lots of stairs at Park Güell! While Jess, Steve, and Brian explored some of the loftier sites, Theo and I hung out at the lovely, shaded playground on the southeast side of the park.

Theo demonstrated that he could slide down the fireman’s pole with great pride. This was a surprise to me and is probably something that he learned at the playground at school.  After showing me, Theo attemped to teach several other children to slide down too. “Look! It’s easy! I can do it! It’s easy,” as he demonstrated. I’m pretty sure that none of the other children could understand him, but several of the parents/grandparents seemed amused.

Visiting city playgrounds around the world has been one of my favorite parts of this two year trip. Not only does it give Theo a chance to run, play, and (attempt to) socialize, but I love observing other parents and children in such a basic slice of urban life.
