Quick trip: Barcelona / Park Güell II

     Antoni Gaudi is encountered everywhere in Barcelona. He was a true visionary, a skilled craftsman and a creator. There is no point in me enumerating all of his accomplishments, they don't make much sense if you are not there to witness them in person, but amongst the many techniques he used in his works, trencadis (the use of ceramic waste, like broken tiles and kitchenware) is something I found fascinating. How one can make a thing of beauty from complete rubble and trash is amazing.
