We arrived in Barcelona around 2:45 this afternoon. It is a long way from Cordoba. Traveling by high speed train at around 240 Kph it took about four hours. It is also a lot cooler and the air conditioner in this hotel works a lot better. We are close to the center of the town – near the port so pretty convenient for a couple of days of sightseeing. This afternoon we walked a couple blocks to the Maritime museum then went past the statue of Columbus to the wharf and looked out onto the Mediterranean. Think we may try a short boat trip tomorrow night. But not in this one. It took almost 250 rowers to move this one around the sea.
Tomorrow will be mostly about Gaudi and his Famous Sagrada Familla Cathedral that is still being built – estimated completion time about 2030. And there are a couple of other of his buildings we are going to try and visit – plus the Roman ruins. Its amazing to think that some of the handiwork of the people who lived here was here in pre-Christian times. It has been quite an experience seeing such old structures.
