At last, a good night’s sleep! As I write this, I’m sipping my tapwater instant coffee (no coffee pot in this otherwise lovely room) and slowly reconnecting with the world of waking Linda. Last night, I even managed to make a couple of ATCs to commemorate days 1 and 2–lots of fun. I’m also keeping a journal and gluing postcards inside, an idea I got from my daughter.
Today, we’re planning to catch one of those tour buses and hit all the high spots, the better to orient ourselves in this lovely city and figure out which sites to explore first. We strolled along the famous La Rambla yesterday afternoon–it was Sunday and three quarters of the place was shut down and it was STILL fabulous–and we’re both eager to go back. I need to find a vase somewhere, because there are so many lovely flowers on sale along that street. I plan to keep our room “flowered up” right from the get-go.
The room itself is lovely. We lost our view of the Cathedral, but we still have a balcony, and the walls are painted a cheery yellow, with stencils of birds on branches. Best of all, we have an internet connection! Yes! As you know, this is not always a sure thing.
Watch this space for the adventures of two sisters abroad….
