Arrived in the rain, first place we saw and we took it to get our selves and our bikes out of the rain. By the time we'd got to our room the rain had stopped and we'd paradise outside our window with a view of the old castle ruins and Iglesia de Santa Maria la Mayor - beautiful. Might not be able to sleep tonight knowing that the view is right there outside the window. Real picture postcard stuff.

... return the car to the Barcelona airport instead of the office where we picked it up. Dropping it off at the airport will be much easier for us. When Don had researched renting a car, the statement on the car rental website was that an international driver's licence is required. Don obtained one in Victoria at the BCAA office for $40, but it was not needed after all - his BC driver's licence was sufficient. We were on our way with the car ...
... is geared up for tourism, there is no word of explanation about the monastic tradition, offices or music (mostly Plainchant, sung in Latin.). I think it would appear very dull to many visitors, which is a great pity. I don't think I'm cut out to be a Cistersian monk.... The Benedictines have better music! However, the saddest thing is that we fear that we are witnessing the last years of a way of life that has been traditional in Europe for ...
