A Barcelona Sunday

... is very Sundayish indeed especially in August. Our local bakery was open but that was about it. Every shop was closed, even El Corte Ingles, the big central department store. It was too hot to shop in any case and we went off to Parc Guell, the remarkable Gaudi-designed park full of his wierd and wonderful terraces and gingerbread man houses to the north of the centre. Extraordinary place with great views of the city and the sea. We lunched in the cafe, read the Sunday Telegraph and played football.

Another great find for dinner - Limbo, just off Via Laeitana near the port. Ben demolished the slow-cooked lamb which he said ´was the best ever´(apart from mine, he ever so politely added)
