Somewhat limited connectivity at the moment, so just a quick post. Been traveling all around Barcelona (Parc Guell, Hospital Sant Pau, Palau de la Musica, Barcelonetta, Montjuic, las Ramblas, Barri Gotic) and points north (San Vicenc dels Horts, Centelles, Vall de Nuria, Ribes, Caldes de Montbui, Sant Sebastia de Montmajor). Tons of pictures (except in Nuria because I forgot the spare battery and was already almost out on the one I had in the camera :-( ). Hopefully will get some uploaded soon, but that might need to wait for better net access. The entire country is "en obras, contra la Crisis". The national government is spending lots of euros on construction projects as one of their economic stimulus programs - in Barcelona, on the highways, in small towns, even on small mountain roads. No idea yet how much it's helping.
