I went to Barcelona for 3 days. It was good. Didn't get enough art galleries in but I was with a friend, K, who doesn't really do them. We had a great time looking round Park Guell but missed out on getting up close and personal with the mosaic benches as the tickets had already sold out for day when we arrived at 10am. The 'birds nests' shown in picture, and the viaducts were especially pleasing. Lots of great architecture all around Barcelona, I really want to go back and spend all my time in galleries, and drinking wine.

Also had a brilliant time at the Picasso Museum which was really well curated - and gave me the opportunity to say "this work reminds me of Toulouse-Lautrec" to K, and then the next text note said "during this period, Picasso was heavily influenced by Toulouse-Lautrec" which got me an impressed "you said!" from K. It's almost like I go to galleries as often as I can!

I'd love to share more photos with you but Flickr apparently takes about 10 years to upload a photo? Given up after 5 tries on both wired and wireless connections.

Itchy feet will have to chill as no job prospects on horizon so that might be last trip for some time.

Understand that feeling. Are you going to apply for a fellowship? I've been looking at them recently. I actually recently got sent a doc with all the most popular fellowships on that I can send your way if you're interested?

Cool. Well, if you want it, let me know. It covers (or should cover) all areas.
