We had one more day in Barcelona and decide to make the most of it going back downtown to see the Gaudi museum. We caught the 165 bus to Plaza Espanya, the L-1 subway to Catalunya and the northbound L-3 subway to the museum. My little compass comes in handy to tell what direction is what when your're in a strange place. We found the museum, bought tickets and went through thiis wonderfully creative architectural creation. This guy is revered in Spain and especally Barcelona. You can see his creative genius and imagination in the photos we'll post later..
After the museum we found an empty sidewalk bench and had lunch, ham and cheese sandwiches MA made that were left over from our breakfast buffet. We then decided to go back to the La Rambla and watch some more "human statues" come to life. We stopped for a cold drink and went to pay only to find out it was "cash only" and we had no Euros. Finally convinced the waiter to take dollars. Don't take your ATM card to Europe, doesn't work here that we can tell. Late in the afternoon we reversed our trip; L-1 to Catalunya and 165 bus to the hotel. We're starting to feel like natives!
This has been a magnificent and memorable trip for us but there's nothing like home, family and dear friends and we look forward to all after our arrive Saturday evening. We want to thank Paul Bice for stepping up to the plate one more time and teaching our Bible Study class for MA. And thanks for reading the travel blog. We have a lot of fun doing it but think we'll stay home for a while, except for a long weekend in Chicago late this month to catch up with Jim and Sue and the grandkids.
