Barcelona: The City 5: Streets

The last of the streets photos. as I already mentioned, the city is between sea and mountains and has grown in the only possible direction, which is uphill, resulting in some streets that would make San Francisco envious. There are even some where there are escalators to get pedestrians up.

Very steep streets

    The first is breathtaking. Hilly cities are nice for the eye and probably good for physical fitness, but some things may be a bit more difficult. The area in which I used to deliver newspapers in Helsinki was on a hillside. Pushing a 140 kg cart of newspapers was sometimes hard as was trying to stop the cart from getting out out of control when going downhill. And I think these hills are bigger (but probably less often slippery from ice).

    To be honest I look at that nice straight line and wish for less obstacles, a layer of hard snow, and a sled… (and a helmet).
