Had another sleep in then went for a walk down to the beach. Rented bikes for two hours and just cruised along the beach front. The man made beach was actually massive and went along way past the main part near La Rambla. Funnily enough we saw a game of rugby going on right next to the beach - although it finished as we got to it so didn't actually get to see them play. Also saw some guys playing 6 on 6 beach volleyball - however one of the teams of 6 were completely naked! ...

... of it, the "hanging weight" method or something like that, which allowed the designers to check the natural shape of the building by hanging appropriately weighted bags (representing the weight of the roof) from appropriate lengths of strings. The force at play is the same whether its going up or down! Really impressive. The final thing about Gaudi, he recognised early on that there was no way the project would be completed, so he didn't design in detail all of ...

... Chill time for an hour or so with the usual computer time. Readied near 1630 for the walk to Sagra Familia. We got there before the 1700 start of our ticket.

Sagra Familia was Gaudi's last work, left incomplete on his death. It became his fixation, sleeping in the church at the end of his life. Its exterior is relatively normal--not the adverb there--but the interior is a bit more offbeat. Columns are trees. Stained glass is more colours than ...

Barcelona - day one of four

... to Manuka, but sparse enough to look like a bad hair transplant. We stopped at the train station at Figueres-Vilifant as our magical mystery tour continued. People got off the bus, they gone on the bus. The net result was one couple stayed off which we assume was the reason for going into the town/city in the first place. Even the French speaking passengers weren't happy with communication. The vegetation turned more green farmland and what we'd call bush in NZ, ...
