Mobile World Congress: Taking a BYTE Out of Barcelona!

We arrived in Barcelona two days before the show started. The city is gorgeous, famous for its Gaudi architecture. The picture below, taken from Wikipedia because there are cranes now all over it during its completion, shows the famous Basilica I Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. Construction began in 1882 and has proceeded off and on since. Now, in 2011, it is only halfway complete. The name Gaudi, as it refers to the architecture so prevalent here, refers to Catalan architect Antoni Gaud

We arrived in Barcelona two days before the show started. The city is gorgeous, famous for its Gaudi architecture. The picture above, taken from Wikipedia because there are cranes now all over it during its completion, shows the famous Basilica I Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. Construction began in 1882 and has proceeded off and on since. Now, in 2011, it is only halfway complete. The name Gaudi, as it refers to the architecture so prevalent here, refers to Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, who died in 1926. These buildings look like sand castles. Wish you could see them. Check out the rest of the slideshow for some of the sights, eats and scenes at the Mobile World Congress as InformationWeek, Techweb and the upcoming BYTE.com storm Barcelona. And I do mean storm. If you want to see show related pictures, they start after my touristy Barcelona slides. Check it all out, though! Well worth it. And stay tuned for more slideshows from Barcelona.
