Lunch on Sunday

Below is our lunch at El Tapas Madre. The sauce on Troy's plate was excellent! Very simple asparagus, cream & onions. The farther plate is my paella.

Another great day

semi-overcast 68 °F

It was another great day in Barcelona. Although we didn't visit all of the places mentioned, we did get to a couple. The pictures are from the inside of the Sagrada Familia which is a church that Gaudi designed starting around 1887. The church is not yet complete and is scheduled to be done around 2026. After the church we took a walk and found some food at an excellent tapas place (El Tapa Madre). Troy had the best pork ever and I had paella. Yum! Next we walked to the Arc de Triomf. An arch similar to Paris but not on a busy street, instead it is near a park. The park was very interesting, it had a "band" with a drummer, a guitarist & a saxophone / clarinet player sitting in a big circle that moved around the park (I will try and post a picture). They were pretty good. We then headed over to the Mueso Picasso which holds his early work. Very interesting! The museum was down some very narrow streets so we walked around after we left the museum and saw some less tourist areas of Barcelona.

Tomorrow is our first wine tasting - Priorat. Three wineries: Buil I Gine, Devinssi, and Dominic en Porrera.
