The last afternoon in Barcelona, Saturday, the 11 of November, the day of planned protests about Catalonian Independence. Earlier in the day, I went to the Museo Historica de Barcelona. My plans for the afternoon involved a quick tour of the Chocolate Museum, a short walk to the beach, and a final Gaudi House, Casa Mila, also known as La Pedrera.
The Chocolate Museum was nothing special. I shouldn't have bothered. Then I walked towards the beach, and found the railroad tracks in my way. It took a while, but I finally found a way to cross them (on a bridge).
I need to get back in grading jail and finish grading. I leave the Abbey tomorrow and head to London to read at the British Library for about 10 days.
And then home to the great (and icy) north woods.
