Day 2, Barcelona

Day 2 in Barcelona went fairly well. Julia tired out after the aquarium, and we were obliged to say goodbye and head with Jared to the Barri Gotic for lunch. Afterwards we hit the cathedral (generally not my style in any way), then said goodbye to Jared. (Do. I really have three times the energy of normal mortals?)

Given that the evening was to be just us, we chose to go to a Flamenco show at the Palau de Musica - three performers, starting at 9 PM. We went back to El Bixto for dinner at a quarter til midnight, and now, two glasses of Vino del Val - Ribera del Duero later, I am quite done for the night and ready to go home tomorrow morning. Too bad I can't sleep in.

Quite possibly! I think you have quite a lot of energy for the type of thing which others can find very draining like wandering round touristy things and keeping your enthusiasm for the next and the next and the next thing.

Do you mean the Cathedral in the centre of town, or did you mean the Temple to St Joseph, more commonly known as La Sagrada Familia? Because, that is the single reason I went to Barcelona... doesn't hurt that my birthday is also St Joseph's Day :-)

We saw it when we went to Barcelona 8 years ago - figured it hadn't changed much since then and if so certainly not enough to pay 10 euros!

We didn't really do sight seeing this trip as we were visiting friends with a 6 month old - we let them pick what we did, which was mostly walking around the Eixample, eating, and hanging out in their flat.

Oh, we didn't pay anything to get into SF, but maybe it was a free day as it was actually St Joseph's Day - well, anyway, I was totally and utterly overwhelmed with it, and intend to go back next year (for St George's Day) for another look!!

I also liked the Cathedral in the centre of town (our youth hostel was very near to there), with the geese wondering round inside... not what you expect from a Cathedral generally!
