Well Barcelona has been about what I expected. I huge port town full of bars and late nights. I dont even understand how this country continues to be successful. Spaniards stay out until 1 or 2 in the morning, every morning, and then get up at 9 in the morning for a full day of work. But,

In a hurry, Rachael is here and we are having a great time. I will update this soon when I have more time.

Sorry that I havent updated for a while, but we have been in a bit of a hurry to see as much as possible while Rachael is here so spending time on the internet in the middle of the day when their are things to be done has been impossible. Barcelona was a great time but not quite what I expected. We didnt find the crazy nightlife that we had heard of but that might have been because we were quite tired by nighttime because we didnt partake in the midday siestas that everybody else did. We visited the beach which was wonderful, one of the nicest that we have seen so far. We also visited the La Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi Cathedra, and it was quite impressive. This thing is huge right now and it isnt even close to being finished and most likely wont be done in my lifetime or anytime soon. One of the reasons for this is that it is built with only donations and no funding by the government. We also watched the US get their asses kicked in soccer but it was still a good time.

Your mom golfed 9 holes Sunday (headache) and was hitting the ball real well (after the 2nd hole) for being off for 6 months.
I KNOW you could beat her.

It is going to be 93* here today. It is 87* as I write. Riley and I are looking for shade. Mom thinks I am mowing the lawn. HA

Wish you were here. I miss you being here. We are having the couch bronzed in your honor.

Love and miss you,
d and Riley
