Dee Rogers



27 October 2008 – Barcelona

Another night in the apartment and the Hell’s Angels haven’t reappeared – all is quiet.

Fruit in and coffee out. Same seaside cafe we’ve been to a couple of times before. It is empty so coffee on the Med and a shared chicken breadroll. Oh, the prices. Something has gone astray between our previous visits and this one which basically costs $36 AUS for 3 coffees and a breadroll. You can tell it’s Dee typing today – I just can’t get over the prices and I can’t help converting to Aussie dollars. We head for a complex of Museums near the University at the far end of the metro system. Our metro pass has been great and the trains come every 5 minutes. Once there we find it is closed on Mondays, so we walk through the gardens which are quite beautiful but our standard is very high and we move on quickly. Back to the Park Guell to see the Casa Museu Gaudi where he lived for 20 years. It is full of furniture he designed and other bits and pieces – over to Pete here as I was underwhelmed after the amazing things we’ve seen.

It’s mid afternoon now so we head back to the apartment via the supermarcado for lunch in. Refreshed we stroll on the beach enjoying the sand between our toes and the foot massage of various sized pebble sections from the top to the bottom of the beach.
