Raminder and I landed in Barcelona last Tuesday night, and rolled into our hotel at about midnight. Finally, the weather was warm enough to get by in teeshirts at night, a nice change from the chilly temperatures of England. We toured Barcelona for 1/2 a day only, as Europe is not a focus for this trip, but were able to fit in lots of sightseeing anyways (as we are now underground tube experts in both England and Spain). In Barcelona the sightseeing focus for us was Gaudi, the whimsical architect who designed towering cathedrals that look like melted candles, and used intricate designs making the buildings resemble professional sandcastles.

Wednesday we decided we needed our own personal sandcastle so we moved on to a campsite on a beach about an hour drive south of Barcelona. We stayed there 2 nights to enjoy just doing nothing for a little while. And what a great place to hang out; the water was about 70 degrees, and clear, and we set our tent up right on the sand. My first swim in the mediterranean sea (how exotic)!

Friday we decided to move onwards to Valencia, where R´s cousin Kambi lives, and we have been enjoying doing as the Spanish do since we got here. Lots of meeting people at cafes and bars and going out late and eating late, and yes... red wine too.

What we do best... wait for busses

Glad you guys had a great time in spain -- your next sand is going to be a big ol desert. Enjoy and be careful of the monster sized bugs if you camp in the sahara. Jesse
