So many interesting sights in Barcelona. For example all the impressive and whimsical architecture by Antoni Gaudi is a treat for the eyes - including the famous Sagrada Familia Cathedral (ever under construction and packed with tourists), Parc Guell (even more tourists) and various buildings all over town. The beach is also nice and helped us to cool down. Our favourite so far though has been the "hidden gem" of the Parc del Laberinto d'Horta, which as the name suggests is home to a bona fide hedge maze! It is a lot of fun to get lost in... if you can discover the center, you will find none other than Eros (in statue form) to congratulate your perseverance! The rest of the grounds sport cooling woods and refreshing pools filled with koi fish - which was nice because it was once again very hot during the day. For much of our visit there were also very few people around - though somehow after we found the center of the maze a number of visitors started pouring in. Spain's been fun and interesting in many ways, and at the same time challenging in others... the ubiquitous and intense heat leaves us pretty drained by the evening, and at this point cities with their crowded hustle and bustle are not so appealing to me. Hoping to connect with more nature/natural energies in a few days when we arrive in Africa.
