After spending our time on the Costa Brava, painting away, it was time to go back to civilization!!! So we head off to Barcelona.
I organized a guided walking tour in the Bari Gothic, the old medieval quarter, of Barcelona. Catherine, our guide, was lovely and very knowledgeable. Catherine is the only one on the picture who doesn’t have her head up (in the middle of the pic):
Below, you see Janet taking a picture of the 14th century synagogue. Janet really wanted to find it but the old quarter is a real maze but with the help of Catherine, Janet was in heaven!!! Sort to speak….
Below, is me giving a little explanation about the figurines we find in the stores representing Queen Elizabeth or Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Francois Mitterand or Raphael Nadal, or any famous people in a more than precarious position. If you want to find out why, you need to join us on our next painting, cooking or cultural tour to Spain! so I can tell you more.
In the evening, we went to a flamenco show in a 15th century palace. The place was fabulous:
This time, for the first time since I have been there, one of the female dancers was wearing pants.
That is very unusual since they always wear flamboyant dresses. You need to see their feet move when they dance. It is simply incredible.
Next blog, I will introduce all the participants with their favorite painting. So, come back!
