1992 Barcelona Olympic Park

Today was my first full day on the ground here in Barcelona.  There wasn't much for me to do on the schedule today other than to get over jet lag, get used to the city (aka spend the day playing tourist), and finally, attend the first USA men's basketball team practice at 8pm.

However, upon arrival to Palau Sant Jordi, the site where the original Dream Team annihilated their opponents in the1992 Barcelona Olympic basketball games, we found out that the practice was either closed or optional (not sure which).  So basically today ended up being a nothing day.  Instead of wasting it wandering around, I shot some of the nearby former Olympic venues.  I thought it was kind of strange that if you didn't know Barcelona hosted the games 20 years ago, there wasn't really any signage to let you know that there had been world class competition in these venues.
