Adventures in Barcelona (Days 4 & 5)

Day 4:

Spent the morning at Sagrada Familia - I was blown away, and I'm a Jew! The Cathedral in process was the most insane thing I've ever seen. If you are a fan of architecture, you must come to Barcelona. The museums honoring Gaudi and the construction are fantastic.

Moved to Hotel #2 - Willow Moon B&B on a boat. Captain Steve is a great host. Spent the afternoon going over to Montjujic (Mount of the Jews) on a Funicular (cable car) and then roaming around looking for the Miro museum. I got us lost on the mountain (some Jew I am) and we got to the Museum just before closing.

Had tapas for dinner in the Born at Taller De Tapas. Pretty good fare. Went back to the boat and talked for hours. CRASHED HARD and slept like a rock!

Day 5:

Steve made us eggs with smoked salmon for breakfast - Fabulous! We got to the Miro late again, but went in anyway. Saw some good art (I liked Picasso better). Wandered around the mountain for the rest of the afternoon and went shopping for gifts (got some great coats for the girls). Ate Tapas at Palau de Musica and saw a great classical guitar show (I was so tired, but the show was great). Had a crepe before bed and spent the late hours with Kathleen.

Modernista architecture - like it
Staying on the boat - like it
Being with the love of my life - LOVE IT!!!!

All props to my love.

Steve, being Jewish, getting lost is an integral part of the faith.. just make sure your travels don't take you anywhere near a desert.. 40 years is a long time...

Glad to hear you are enjoying Barcelona..
