We definitely have fallen into a different rhythm for our days. We both sleep late (for us) and slowly get showered and dressed. Breakfast has been between 9 and 10 AM. We wander around, people watch, and eventually come up with a plan for the day. Today we walked down to the Museum of Chocolate (Museo de Xocolate in Catalunyan) and had a great time. (The "ticket" is a bar of dark chocolate!!!!) I had a cup of the very very very dark chocolate - almost like hot syrup, and so delicious! So rich that was lunch!
We snacked our way through all kinds of interesting streets, visiting little shops and buying samples and sharing them.
More people watching on the pedestrian streets as the holiday lights came on about 6 PM. We finally wound our way back to the hotel, and are having a short break. We'll head out to dinner around 8:30 PM. Late by American standards, early by Barcelona standards.
And then some more walking, and fall into bed about midnight or 1 AM. To do the same again tomorrow.
I love being on vacation!
