Bye Bye Barcelona ~ On Tourisms Downsides...

Feargus O'Sullivan at Atlantic Cities asks what's Ruining Barcelona?
"'Barcelona? It's a theme park.' Spain's second city is so effortlessly attractive that it's hard to believe anyone could fall out of love with it. A new documentary called Bye Bye Barcelona, however, shows some long-term residents wondering aloud how much longer they can stay where they are. The problem? Tourism, specifically a local industry that has become so dominant it risks stifling ordinary, everyday life in the city's heart."
