La Rambla is the most famous street in Barcelona. The wide boulevard connects the Plaça de Catalunya, a busy square, with the Columbus Monument and the city’s waterfront. We had to go to Las Ramblas today. Janel and I wanted to see it, be in it. We wanted to know why it was famous. Las Ramblas did not disappoint.
Christopher made a lavish breakfast for all of us. He made a dish specific for each individual taste. He does that sometimes. You have to love him. He does the sweetest, most thoughtful gestures. He made all members of his family happy this morning. More importantly, the children ate very well. We still made it out by 11:30 a.m. We took the metro from the Tarragona stop and then we walked for hours. The children were tired but enjoyed the walk. We purchased a few little souvenirs on side streets. We eventually had to take a cab home because the children had nothing left in them. We were home by 5 p.m., so they had plenty of time to play. Let me tell you how good I am getting. My beautiful children were in bed by 7:30 p.m. after calling their Grandma to say good night and give an account of their day. They also made sure she knew that they were flying to London tomorrow to be with Jibril and Noe. Granted it was not all of my doing. They had an incentive. They wanted tomorrow to come quickly so that they can be with Jibril and Noe. The sooner they go to go sleep…….
I will be spending the night packing. Our flight is not so early as before. But, I can’t get anything done in the morning. We have to be out by 8:30 a.m. I will see you all in London.
Pictures to come:
