This weekend is set to be a busy one. The weather seems to have sorted itself out, and there are some great events to keep everyone busy.
Firstly, it's the Formula 1 Grand Prix at nearby Montmelo racetrack. After the panic that volcanic ash was going to create havoc with travel plans for many of the teams, it seems that everyone is here, ready and raring to go. Obviously Jenson Button is still the man to beat, and there'll certainly be a determination in Lewis Hamilton to do well, or at least beat Fernando Alonso, after 2008's disgraceful treatment of Hamilton here. Barcelona will surely be hanging the almost-full sign up in many hotels and apartments for this weekend.
Also starting today is the Salon Comic at the Fira de Barcelona in Montjüic. I remember going past the equivalent venture in Hospitalet of Manga last year, and it was hilarious, with many people dressed up as their favourite characters, so I'm sure today will be no exception.
The BBC has also their Walking with Dinosaurs exposition at Palau Sant Jordi, finishing on Sunday - tickets still available if you're interested.
