While shopping, my wife’s bag got stolen. It was attached on our kid’s travel prom but somehow, they managed to steal it without us noticing. We went to the customer service to report the fact, and although they were polite, they were of very limited help because (a) they informed us that only the police could view the surveillance camera recordings and (b) they sent us to the police station to report the fact, which was more than 1 km away, in unknown surroundings. When we finally managed to find the police station, the policeman guarding the entrance tried to deter us from filing a complaint by telling us that we might have to wait for 3-5 hours.

Overall, I got the impression that muggings are so common that in reality they treat them as a mere matter of bad luck, without any real intention of doing anything about it, over and above keeping the minimum pretenses. They might even treat it as a natural and expected part of a Spanish vacation!!!!!!

Our wifes had a shopping tour in the store, me and my friend had some hours to rest. We found a nice self service restaurant with an incredible view on the top of the store. Also the food was excellent!

Went here today on recommendation, terrific choice of different foods from many countries at very reasonable prices. This restaurant has views of the lovely city of Barcelona to die for, one ont to miss, especially the Restaurant on the 9th Floor.

This place has a heap of stuff, shows, clothes etc but the staff here are the worst. No service, poor attitude. Especially in the UA and New Balance area. Was going to buy a pair of shoes but there was no one to serve me, so left and went else where!
