We are starting to get a little travel-weary, so this is going to be a short post.  Enjoy the millions of photos we took yesterday and today.  If you have any questions, too bad.  :)  Just kiddin'-shoot them at us!

We saw so much of the city the past two days, and have now successfully visited all of Antoni Gaudi's major architectual works (and some minor ones as well).
Highlights of the past 2 days:
-Having breakfast this morning at Pinotxo Bar in La Boqueria and getting Juan to flash me a thumbs up smile for a picture
-Touring the Palau Guell and Parc Guell-those Guells really knew how to bring out the best in Gaudi!
-Visiting our favorite cheap tapas bar again for dinner.  1.40 euros per stick and .70e beers!  Can't beat it!
-Touring the Catalan Concert Hall, another Modernist masterpiece (by Lluis Domenech, not Gaudi).  Most beautiful stained glass ceiling!
-Finally getting to see La Sagrada Familia.  Truly spectacular.  Words cannot do it justice, so please enjoy the ridiculous amount of pictures and appreciate how much our necks hurt from looking  up for 2  hours. 
-Everyone is Barcelona has been exceptionally friendly!  My Spanish is pretty peor, but I've never been made to feel embarrassed or out of place.  This is a city we'll definitely return to.

Tomorrow, we hit the road back to France, with a quick (not really) detour to Andorra so Mark can add another country to his list.  We're going to be in the Dordogne region, in Sarlat, for 3 nights.  Total relaxation again, peppered with a nice canoe trip down the Dordogne River and lots of foie gras.  Adeu!
