You can read the whole of Adham's recent interview with Barcelona Metropolitan here. A short extract is below.

Adham told them:

I did the Barcelona metro run about a year ago, visiting every station. It took me a total of four hours, 49 minutes and 45 seconds to complete, which was, as someone pointed out, quite a poetic time. I was staying down the road from the Sagrada Família, and remember walking past it on my way to the metro and feeling that it was magnificent, but I don't go to the cities to see the sights: I just concentrate on their underground systems.
