    Default Barcelona

    We got back from Barcelona on Monday night, and I've just found time time to post!
    We had a fantastic time, it's a lovely city, great people and lovely buildings, and we even had a warm, sunny day on Monday.
    The trip was enlivened by a few surreal moments!
    Walking back from a restaurant one night we were stopped by a dozen Spanish kids dressed as Spiderman, who kept asking us something I couldn't understand. I was getting a bit twitchy, until one of them realized we were English, and explained that they were just looking for a good restaurant! I gave them a card from the place we'd just left, and they went away happy.
    Then we were eating lunch at a restaurant by the beach, when there was a kerfuffle from the palm tree overhead, and we were e joined by a family of green parakeets, who stayed for some time, eating the palm nuts.
    My favourite moment, though, was when we took our last walk up the Ramblas (the main drag through the town), which is full of buskers and "living statues". One of them was a brilliant Satan, with red makeup, a big black cloak and a staff, which he used to scare passers by, banging it on the ground and yelling in Spanish.
    He turned out to be a Scouser! fantastic!

    I recommend you go there immediately. It'll enrich your soul.
    Unless you drink some stuff called "Marc De Cava", which will just rot your liver...

    Nice to hear you had such a good time. Did you visit the old olympic stadium of 92? I loved every minute of Barcelona.

    It's a lovely place. the weather, as you'd expect in the spring. was a bit variable, with rain on Saturday, and bright sun and temperatures in the low 20's on Monday. It was never cold, though. Here's a couple of low-res pics -see if you can guess which day was which.....

    I'm going in September, we've got a week booked in Lorette.

    It's nice to hear good things about the area, especially since we've never taken the kids abroad yet and am a little apprehensive
