This place reminds me of my grandparents state in Mexico City. The view of the city is awesome; the building has a great history and dates back to 801! The service has been very good, our server Pablo has bent over backwards to deliver a couple of cold Moritz beers, antipasto platers with Manchego cheese, Iberic ham and Terra Nostra wine. Dinner later at the outdoor dinning room was Salmoralejo (Gazpacho), antipasto platter with cheese, prosciutto, endives, anchovies, etc. porc "old style" with peppers and tomatoes, and a fish platter with red peppercorns, fruit and vanilla ice cream for dessert. More of the Terra Nostra chilled tinto and two espressos cortados con leche! Very nice indeed!

Today we went to see Gaudi's -the famous architect's buildings that he designed about 100 years ago: La Sagrada Basilica and Park Guell. I love all the things he made of mosaic, so colourful and all the windows were made out of mosaic too! Then we went on a Barcelona Bus Turistic bus tour and I really enjoyed it and there were headphones too so you could hear what they say about the famous buildings I ...
The alarm got us up very early, we found Claire (she was flying to Istanbul from Casablanca five minutes after we were to leave) and walked to the station. The sight of McDonalds being closed, while not a complete surprise, was not an enthusiastic sign and meant half a day of Ramadan for us. We rode the 3.5 hours to Casablanca's main station and arrived in perfect time to grab the next train to the Aeroport. Once we made it through check-in we rushed straight for the food court and ...
We have finally worked out why the Spanish need a siesta from 1-4:30; red wine was served with breakfast at our hotel this morning. Believe it or not, we chose coffee over the wine. Given we were heading back to Barcelona this afternoon, it was an early start to get to the Dali Museum right on opening. We spent a few hours wandering the Museum and wondering about Dali's state of mind. It was really a fascinating place and Figueres is a picturesque town. Back on ...
... and the national palace are sited. We had a look around the castle, but decided not to go in instead we caught another bus to the national palace and walked up the stairs (when I say stairs I mean went up a series of escalators) there to get to an amazing view over the city. We also wanted to see the big fountains that are in front of the palace but got there only to find out the fountains are only turned on on Fridays and Saturdays. We went back to ...
I'm used to, I'm sure we are all used to, seeing billboards with advertising for say strippers. But I don't think I've ever seen one openly advertising call girls. Well welcome to Barcelona where you can go on to 'apricots' website and get a call girl and they are "openly discrete"! Barcelona is interesting. Architecture is both beautiful and unusual and at times ...
