... us to come back at 7:30pm. We decided to find a nearby bakery because we were quite famished. We headed and came across a cafe. We ordered tapas with Sangaria. I didn't think it'd be enought but I was proven wrong. I was quite surprised, the chef said the food was sufficient for 4 people. It was actually sufficient for 3.

We entered the basilica at the Passion façade. This is actually the side entrance of the ...
I was happy to look out and see that there wasn't a cloud in the sky this morning. It was nice to be able to get up a little bit later and take our time getting ready. I was surprised how productive we were able to be in such a short period of time because alot of the major sites are fairly close together.
