A taste of Spain

Photos of Cata and I (right column) were taken by our friend Bogdan Stamatin who currently lives in Barcelona. Lucky guy.
What a gift! I know lots of people sign up for wedding registries to receive the kitchen appliance(s) of their dreams, or say a beautiful china set. That is all well and good but our friends here in Bucharest gave us something a little different...a trip to Barcelona. I was thrilled to go on holiday right in the middle of what had become a dreary Bucharest winter. We spent lots of time outdoors in Barcelona where the sunny weather called for a light jacket instead of a down jacket (yipeee). For me, the best part of Barcelona, minus Gaudi's great works, was the food and drink. I think we tried and enjoyed something new everyday from tortilla de patata (watch how to make it here), Spanish red wine, tapas, fresh seafood and bocadillos filled with jamon y queso. Mmmmm Spain tasted good. All that is left now is to go back for seconds.
