    ... will be the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death. When Tracy visited Barcelona in 1997 the inside was incomplete and visitors could not enter the building. Today the entire interior is complete using designs and drawings Gaudi left behind. We will have to visit again in 12 years to see the Sagrada Familia when it's finally finished! After we left Begonia we wandered through the Boqueria, the Barcelona food market first mentioned in history in the year 1217. After a ...

    ... table! The difference between the picture and the plate was comparable to the difference between burgers that you see on the McDonald's commercial and what you actually receive inside your brown paper bag! While we were sitting there, waiting for the prawns to come out, Dane spotted old mate Dougie from Sant Jordi Hostel waiting at the traffic lights to cross the road - small world! He came over for a chat and it was nice to hear what he'd been up to since we had parted ways a few ...

It was quite a fun night and it was so nice to see so many people out enjoying the evening. The bigger fireworks came later and were quite a show. Cristina let us know two things about this night....she said it would be magical ...and that it would be impossible to sleep! ...

    ... sellers go, as La Rambla already seems a lot quieter than two years ago when we last came. When we reached the bottom of La Rambla we finally found 8 living statue street performers. Gill has googled why there are so few and found that there used to be 140 street performers, but this has now been limited to a maximum of only 12 at a time!!!!! We just don't understand why?

    ... The Swiss Army knife proved quite handy, doubling as wine opener and cheese-cutter. The meal was a great success! We had many cute pictures of the entire experience, but sadly there are none to share with you. This is because it was around this time that Michelle committed Epic Fail #2: losing her iPhone (aka her soul mate). Fortunately we were able to enjoy the evening and explore a bit of La Rambla before making this tragic discovery - of course when we did, that was the end ...
