Slept in a bit due to the rainy weather, we hit Las Ramblas and La Boqueria which is a huge market where you can buy any part of an animal or plant you can think of! Bought some exotic fruit salad and two smoothies for our walk to see the architecture of Gaudi. The Parc Guell was really nice (Lyn finally got to see the lizard made from broken dishes and tile). I fell off of a wet rock and almost broke one of our cameras. Lyn wasnt very happy. But all is well and we made our late afternoon train to Cerbere. This is were it get interesting...

Two weeks into our trip and we are loosing track of what day of the week it is and what the date is. Lyn thought the 14th was Friday and we ended up in Cerbere a day early. With not train to Nice, the officials at the station suggested we go to the larger station in Perpignon where we would be able to find a hotel. Due to the fil festival the first 5 hotels we checked were "complet" or full. We ended up in a hostel, in a room with 3 other people. We took this time to update our journal, finish our bottle of Champagne we have been carrying since Cherbourg, and watch some of the film they were playing that night. (Tim Burton's 'Nightmare before Christmas') in English with subtitles in French. -Oh well, we knew something like this was going to happen sooner or later and overall, it was not so bad. (loose a day in Barelona, but gaining a day in Nice!)
