We both woke up early this morning due I suppose to jet lag. We were at the doors of the Corté Inglés department store on Plaza Catalan at 9am when they opened. The cafeteria on the top floor has great food and a stupendous view.
We hadn’t walked around the old gothic quarter yet on this trip so we explored the narrowing winding streets for a bit and then had breakfast number 2. I love croissants. This time we had something called fartós. They were kind of like croissant sticks, so good! And the chocolate croissant was just as heavenly.
This afternoon we went out to the airport and met Brian and JoAnn who will be traveling with us for the next two weeks. We are staying at the Avenida Palace Hotel here in Barcelona for one more night.
After Brian and JoAnn got settled we walked around in the Gothic Quarter some more. The facade of the Barcelona Cathedral is pretty amazing.
We ate dinner at a place called el Concepto. The service was exceptionally good and the food was too.
My desert was a chocolate torte with whipped cream. I’m not sure what the red things were on top but they were very good.
We were all pretty exhausted by the time we made it back to the hotel. Monday our plan is to rent a car and leave Barcelona.
