The elements of a perfect weekend in Barcelona

  1. Peerless weather - blue skies, sun, 16C all weekend
  2. A holiday weekend - three kings - so no shops open
  3. saturday morning walking along the Passeig de les Aigües in the Collserola hills above the city
  4. saturday afternoon on the beach in town
  5. saturday evening watching another Powell Pressburger classic I know Where I'm Going
  6. And then catching the 2nd half of Zaragoza - Seville, one of the best games of the season
  7. Sunday morning with the papers on an outside table at the Bar Sandor in Plaza Francesc Macià, "sin duda la mejor terraza de Barcelona."
  8. Sunday afternoon cycling along the Diagonal cycle path to Parc Cervantes along with a 1,000 children trying out their new bikes
  9. Then a great FA Cup Tie watching Henrik Larsson score his first goal for United. How they miss him here.
  10. to wit, Barca could only draw a nasty fixture at Getafe, sans Eto'o, Messi, Ronaldinho, Deco and more
  11. But Real Madrid lost
  12. er, that's it ....
