[Two of the buildings you can visit in my neibourhood, an incredible hotel where Woody Allen played jazz, Hotel Casa Fuster, and an amazing youth hostel called Alberg Mare de Déu de Montserrat]
48H Open House BCN means the chance to visit more than 160 amazing buildings in Barcelona, next weekend, and completely for free. I think it's a really interesting activity, as many of the buildings are not usually open to the public for a guided visit. Here is the information so you can choose what to see. You can explore buildings through the Open House project in London, New York, Dublin, and many other cities worldwide. Visit their website for more details. Enjoy!

Apparently, Barcelona is a great place to shoot films. I've already mentioned the European production Perfume, Red Lights, or a film by Albert Espinosa. I also loved this video where you can see Barcelona in 1908 and this love story by Leticia Dolera. Now, you can see here the 10 best films set in Barcelona, according to Jill Adams (The Guardian). What do you think? I haven't seen them all, but I think En construcción is good, L'auberge espagnole is entertaining, and VCB is like a weird tourist guide (but Paco de Lucía's song is perfect!). Enjoy!

Lost and Found, by Oliver Jeffers, is one of our favourite children's books. We also bought the shortfilm based on his book and it's just excellent. I'm a fan of Oliver Jeffers on facebook and he has just posted this step-by-step guide to draw penguins. I love the "borrow the penguin" idea, ha, ha. Enjoy!
