I took the opportunity to spend two weekends with a friend of mine, Javier, from Barcelona. I had a Eurailpass and on Friday 13 and 20 July 1990, I took off for Madrid's Chamartín station for the 15.00 train to Barcelona. It took about 6 hours to get there. The first weekend, Javier and I toured the city and saw things like the Sagrada Familia and other places. At that time, Barcelona was sprucing up for the upcoming 1992 Olympics. The joke around town was, "The shortest distance between two points is...under construction." The second weekend, we went to meet up with his family at their beach house at Vilanova i Geltru.

    I loved the old cathedral a lot. It has that special atmosphere and the Spanish are very religious. Something we lost i Belgium.(I don't like Churros y chocolate - that's no chocalate.;-)) I hope to see Barcelona again one day. Great food tips Nat.
