Tuesday 24th April
Just back from sunny Barcelona—our first visit there. What a beautiful city - attractive, clean, and seemingly populated with helpful smiling people. Gaudi's buildings are truly fascinating, especially the jaw-dropping Sagrada Familia, which now contains an organ (in two cases, one either side of the High Altar). To our delight, the instrument struck up all on its own every hour, setting a serene atmosphere for the visiting 1000s by playing gentle Bach. Perfect!
