Rome under Barcelona - hard to get the whole lot in a...

Wine making area


Raced off nice and early (9am) to see Gaudi's park. We didn't even have to ask for a seniors ticket - he gave it to us. Hmmm seniors here are over 65! Lucky we were out there early - the wait was only 2 1/2 hours. Fortunately there was a free part to wander around, lunch to get and time to muse and read. On reflection it was a waste of time. Not so crash hot - seen better in India. Oh such travelers. Back to Barcelona for a wonderful history of Barcelona museum. Really well presented and the audio guide topped it off. We walked for about 2 hours - UNDER the city. They have excavated miles of Roman ruins, put lots of it back together and you see Roman life in front of you. Yes it is all broken and not all there but enough to put you in the picture 2000 years ago. Then a 4th to 6th century church. Amazing what is left. Really enjoyed that visit. Then to tapas of course and watch Barcelona go to sleep. No it didn't - we left at 9pm and they were still going strong. The funicular had broken down but a bus took us instead. A little longer, so many bends, so fast and so much more dangerous. The city lights looked great as we sped up the hill but we were way too close to the edge for my liking, and at other times too close to the motor cycle riders coming down the hill.Raced off nice and early (9am) to see Gaudi's park.
