We are now in Barcelona on day 6 of our painting workshop.
Today, we didn’t expect to met the giants. Not the sport team from San Francisco but the giants from Barcelona, the ones made out of wood and clothing.They are part of the Catalonian tradition. They use them on special occasions. They walk and dance in the streets. So Dee and I had the chance to see them perform on plaza Reial.
In the evening, I had a surprise for the group. We were invited at Julius’ house for dinner. We were served an incredible dinner with Catalan and Spanish specialties. It was a real feast.
Julius presented us the fresh fish and sea food he will use for the dishes.
We had a private dinner with 8 different tapas, 2 main dishes and dessert. The least we can say is that we were stuffed but in heaven…
Dee is presenting the Cocal de escalivada, the Catalan version of our pizza.
Karen decided to dress up to go to this very nice place, a clandestine gallery in the Barri Gotic.
One of the main dish was the Catalan Fideua with sea food and aioli. It is the “noodle” version of the paella.
We could barely walk back to the hotel after eating all that food but it was an unforgettable experience.
