Torment

I have 12 minutes left on this computer. Am in VERY cool youth hostel in Barcelona: Hostel Itaca. If you´re ever in town, stay here.

Barcelona: awesome. Gaudi: awesome!!!! Walking: Not awesome!

Monday last (God, was that only a week ago??? I went for a 90 min run from my hostess´ flat to the center of sevilla along the river to a cool bridge that looked like a harp ... everything was going great! I was bopping to the tunes! Beautiful day! And 45 minutes in ... something sort of snapped at the top of my right thigh... it´s been bothering me, and i guess it had had enough. No panic, though, I just limped/walked-ran home.

And then the next day I went to see: Marco Antonio (and I have the photos to prove it). More about that later.

I have had so many adventures I can´t begin to count them. This is my last night here, tomorrow I see the rest of Barcelona then back to sevilla at night then to england, then to a hotel then to heathrow, then to me case.

sigh.

Sounds like a wonderful time. I just hope you can make the translation back to speaking English again when you return home...seeing how fluid you've become in Espanol that is. Travel mercies chica!

Just when you get the hang of Spanish, you go to Catalonia! I've enjoyed reading your travelogue. I was in Bacelona a year and a half ago, and have fond memories of running there (also eating and sightseeing.) Those people know chocolate! Where will you be in England--London? I hope you get to spend some time in that great city.

Barcelona is the BEST!!! Love Gaudi, he's the guy that did the swirly houses and Parc Guell, right? Coolest city....!

Hope the leg is ok! Safe travels home, can't wait to see the photos!

Be careful, around the Sagrada Familla there are a lot of thieves.
