We are a couple on the move. Follow and see where and what we are up to; occasionally it is a big adventure, but usually it is the daily, small ones that happen. Read, enjoy, comment. We would love to hear from you.

"But, My God, They Were Travellers"
Kathy and I hit the narrow streets of Barri Gotic to sample the offerings of shoes, dresses, shirts, and any other thing that drew our interest. We did not purchase a lot, but there is more to pack...oh no.
The best find was near the Arc De Triomf: WOK, a Japanese restaurant advertising a buffet. For those of you who know the Crazy Buffet in Tampa, Florida, these folks are a close second. It's smaller, but definitely the place for sushi, shrimp to peel, other seafood, fish, and meat to grill to order as well as vegetables, paella, noodles, lychee and an array of other fruits, flan, chocolate mousse, and jello, if you prefer that. We plan to drag Jim there tomorrow.
Today is Monday so most museums are closed, but MAC BA, Barcelona's Museum of
Contemporary Art was open. There were many artists with unusual ideas and unique
names. Our favorite artists were George and Gilbert, sculptors from the late 60s and 70s. One of the pieces they are most famous for are The Ten Speeches. Here is the first speech: "They weren't GOOD Artists They weren't BAD Artists But, My God, They were Artists". Hence, our title. It was fun to make up our own speeches about women, dogs, travellers, you name it.
