Barcelona, Spain. Mercat de la Bouqueria.

No matter where you go in this world, you will find three things in every single town: Chinese food, Coca-Cola, and Walt Disney. In Barcelona, it was an eye-opener to come around a corner in the wonderful indoor market Mercat and see the hero of Carlo Collidi’s 1883 children’s story, The Adventures of Pinocchio, sitting above the vendor’s stall. Remember Disney’s adaptation of the wooden puppet who comes to life as a boy and whose nose grows longer whenever he tells a lie?
