We Made It to Barcelona

Carrer de Ferran. BarcelonaMy apologies to Civitavecchia which is not in fact the “dingy outskirts of Rome” but actually a rather tony suburb filled with restaurants and hotels and even a block full of carnival games and Italian teenagers. The ferry ticket office, tastefully positioned between the shipping containers and Ms. Bikini beachwear outlet, had enough tickets available not just for us but also for the entirety of the Swiss Guard and their tailors had we happened to bring them along.

The ferry ride itself was pleasant enough, though I was forced to watch most of the video for Sting’s “We’ll be Together” in the ship’s bar. We arrived in Barcelona and over the last four hours have found it to be warm and full of delicious Catalonian food and weird Modernisme architecture and with an easily navigable metro system with ticket machines that are eager to take our money. And that’s all we could ask for.

Kindly Provide Mr. Madej With Your Viewpoint

Now you’re talking! It’s time to check out some o’dat Gaudi architecture I done heard so much about! That’s what I’d go see if I could go anywhere in the whole wide world!

I don’t know…. spending the night in a tent made of pizza boxes makes a much better story. You might want to use a little artistic license when you write the book/screenplay :)
