Well that's enough reason for me to be there too. I have a friend who lives in Sitges, down the coast a bit, so I shall stay there and join you for the occasional meal, drink and chat!

I've been in Sitges I think, it's brilliant there.

Hey Dys there is already a Barcelona thread so you should cross-link.

McTag, the Barcelona thread died a long death. This is the new one.

I already linked to this one there.

I am not sure if this is the latest thread - I think it isn't.

Let's say this is the thread I can find.

Dys and Diane haven't nailed a date, ever, on Barcelona, vascillating, which of course I understand, you haven't decided, and reasonably so.


but this was also a matter that kerplotzed me when I cared about this stuff, a year ago trying to work a poll. I watched varied waffles, waffle waffling, not only from them (I counted six different times from one or the other), but others, many others. I tried to achieve congruence, waste of time. We needed someone sterner than me to get any straight total.

Now I don't give a ****, except that it may matter, as I'll be house sitting. (we're pals, despite my stern tone.)

Longjohnboy has a need to know, and you guys re him, as I know you want to meet him.



Throws up hands, except to link this -

It seems to me that the only way to work this stuff is by announcing a date of arrival and expressing interest, however much, in meeting locals, although, given warning, some, not entirely local, can make it too.

Might well be that I'll come.

This will, however, happen on a shorter notice, since my plans for this year are already - more or less - fixed.

I've read recently that dys is doing very well in the stock market, so it would seem his and Lady Diane's Barcelona trip is a sure "go." All we need to do now is tie down some dates.

I'll be in Barcelona on December 1, but have a chance to extend my trip to Tunisia from October 18 for a week or so. I'm still not sure about the air routing, so this one is a maybe.

Well, since all the Barcelona ( & 'general meeting') got derailed meanwhile, I'd thaught, at least one would be kept :wink:

Show at the NY Met Museum with a lot about Barcelona

Barcelona the Enchantress, by Robert Hughes (2004)

The article on the museum show mentioned the 1992 book by Hughes, simply titled Barcelona. I see they can be purchased as a package, in the link above.

I shall be attending a 60th birthday party in Sitges near Barcelona, the first week of June. If any A2Kers care to join me for a meal or 3 I'd be delighted!
