A lot of cities will do stuff like this. Barca is sick of tourists too and the city I live in costs a fortune to rent in as most of the city centre is airbnbs.

I stay in hostels, are they like fair trade/low impact tourism now? :P You can cram the tourists in, way more efficient space wise.

Fortunately for the top 1%, they can buy their way out of efficient space use! Too bad for the little guy!

They're rogues as well, for the most part. I had one of the fellas on Damrak try to sell me a box of Rips for €10. Cunt was trying to gift-wrap them. :lol:
