Earlier this year, I spent nearly 3 months in Europe: my retirement present to myself.
I have posted quite a lot of photos since I got back, but there are many more which I would like to have see the light of day, so I'm going to try to publish a few every day or two.
Today's are from Barcelona.
My son and his girlfriend have lived there for about seven years now,
and I've been there before; it's one of my favourite cities,
especially away from the crowded sightseeing spots.
This peaceful spot is the little plaça which my son's apartment overlooks.
No cars are allowed, and the trees provide much-needed shade.
The people of the neighbourhood meet for coffee and conversation while
the kids play, there is a community vegetable garden...
On one walk, we paid a visit to the enormous Cementiri de Montjuïc:
"In Spain, the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world."
~ Federico Garcia Lorca
