After a slightly grueling but uneventful flight and a short bus ride into town we are here. Unbeknownst to us today is a huge city wide rally to force a vote for Catalan independence from Spain against the wishes of Madrid. There are thousands of people in the streets wearing the red and yellow of the Catalan flag!

Our room overlooks the church of Santa Maria del Pi (14Th c. Gothic). Here’s the view:
