It is so wonderful to stay with a local person. First Leonardo looked up the train schedule to Pamplona on his computer. Then he told me how to get to the Central Station by walking and taking the Metro so that I could purchase my ticket for Sunday. I also managed to take the bus to Park Guell where I saw some of the works of Gaudi.
Although it was cloudy today, I could see views of the city from the top.
This afternoon Leonardo and I went to a fantastic seafood restaurant, La Paradeta, where we chose the seafood and the cooked it. We has grilled calamari with garlic and basil, grilled tuna, mussels in red sauce, giant prawns, and a fantastic salad. They cooked a couple of things at a time so we had time to eat slowly.
This evening Leonardo had arranged for me to have a front row seat at the local Flamenco Dancing Show. I was mesmerized by not only the dancing, but also the guitar playing, drumming, and singing. They did everything with such passion. Photos cannot capture it. I wish the videos I took would work, but I’m not sure how to do that yet.
