Barcelona by Inmaculada Cagliostro


" My good friend Paula recommended a tranny trip to Barcelona in Spain after her visit in 97. "The women are so well dressed and so stylish. As trannies we do not stand out as 'over dressed' as we might in the UK" she said.

My partner Lesley visited Barcelona during September 98, as always I would have liked to go with her but WayOut is a hard taskmaster. She visited on the week of the 'Merce Festival'. Every where were cosmopolitan crowds enjoying traditional and modern street entertainment. On stage she saw (walk on the wild side) - Lou Reed. Without considering the opportunities that Barcelona has for "Rare People" such as myself. Lesley would recommend a trip to the city just for the architecture, friendly people atmosphere and the food (Lesley speaks fluent 'food' in every language).

I was already green with envy and cross to have missed this trip but when I received the fabulous pictures and advice from Inmaculada Cagliostro I could have kicked myself. Barcelona has to be my first stop for a holiday trip. Make it yours too with Inma's help.".
