Thanks for Your Good Wishes...

...but my technical skills are vastly overrated. I have no internet access on my phone here, so I am relying on the old-fashioned, tried and true computer. It took a little thought to figure out the @ sign, as it doesn´t work the same way  in Spain as in the United States.  But I´´m figuring out the keyboard and grateful for the chance to blog and catch up with friends and family.

The flight was great -- half empty and a nice dinner. Barcelona is beautiful. Our hotel is in the area near the Olympic Village, which has become a very nice residential neighborhood. A number of small and relatively inexpensive restaurants are nearby. We did the bus tour this afternoon and will pick two or three sites to visit tomorrow. I would happily stay a few more days, as there lots of things to see. Great museums, great architecture and a beautiful harbor.

I´ll be back later in the week. Good wishes for a terrific Thursday!

I'm glad you made it there safe and sound and hope you do get your phone access eventually. Great that you have a computer to use and keep in touch with. It's hard to believe there you are so far away and blogging away as usual. I'll be looking forward to pictures.

Hope you get your phone working soon. Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Keep safe, hang onto your bag/purse. There is a lot of bag/purse snatching in Barcelona.

love and hugs

Hope you are taking lots of pictures - - - and journaling somewhere because you will see so much that it will run together and you might forget something of this great trip.

Hope you are getting lots of sunny Spain sunshine. I love Barcelona- so much to see by just walking around. Just returned from Florida where I had Key Lime on a stick- now just back to the stick-cold and rainy in NYC- enjoy every last minute of your trip!
