We’re back home now, after a long day of travel followed by a day of unpacking and feeling out of sorts and off schedule. That’s my excuse for the delay in posting about our Saturday trip to Tarragona.
Anyway, we spent the day with Jordi, a fellow language learner. We met on italki and talk on skype, practicing English and Spanish. Jordi met us at the Camp Tarragona train station and showed us around the city. As you can see, the weather was iffy, alternating between pleasant and ugly.
After our Montserrat visit, our tour included a dinner and wine tasting. It was held at a castle surrounded by a resort, including a golf course, restaurant, and winery. The food was amazing.
Mary’s main course was lamb with a pear sauce.
I had duck with berry sauce.
Seems there was some interest in my beachfront fixer-upper, and I suspect there are others in the states that might like to find a place for themselves. (I’m looking at you, Martha.) So, I’ve been on the lookout for other bargain places here.
I found this diamond in the rough here in Hospitalet.
Remember La Pedrera? The Gaudi building at the top of this blog?
Everyone here agrees we’ve had unusually great weather in Barcelona since we arrived, and yesterday was maybe the best so far, 72 and mostly sunny. We’re just back from a few days in Valencia, and on Monday we’re taking a day trip to Gerona, so we’re relaxing on the days between. Today we went to Citadel Park.
We’re taking the day off. We arrived at our Barcelona apartment about 11 pm last night, pretty worn out. The train was roomy and comfortable, but let’s just say it was not an express.
We did have a very fun last day in Valencia, though. We wandered outside old town, and as always, found cool stuff in the streets.
