  2. Hello Andrew,

    I was wondering if you have any stock video footage left over from your trip that I could use in my music video?

    I am working on a music video for a song dedicated to Barcelona.
    I am in love with this city and am trying to make a video collage about it.

    Here is the link to a tumblr blog with more details: http://shareyourbarcelona.tumblr.com/

    Otherwise, I’ll be happy to answer any questions about the project,

    Thank you,

    Olga

  3. You can’t mention Spain without mentioning Gaudi. I never really liked him until I went to Spain and saw his work in its home environment. His work is interesting and spectacular in ways only genius artistic architecture can be.
