German, sometimes miserable
not bald, don´t like beer
looking for a Liverpoolian, bald
who buys him a wine
that wood be fine
(that was the rhyme)
and for a guy from Haiger, bald
who buys him another glass
which wood be kind
(no rhyme, nevermind)

sería alegre

Is it my duty, dear Ken, to convey to you the awful truth that there is no such thing as sense in the world? That´s why we are drinking.

In solemn paintings such as that I have put my trust and all my optimism.

And one more, regarding your signature: Though your promise count for nothing you must love them nonetheless.

Some tourist info for those of us who stay a while in Barcelona:

It will be best to buy tickets to Sagrada Familia (Antonio Gaudi's amazing church) online (if you don't want to stay in line for hours): http://www.sagradafamilia.org/en/tickets/ - and the guided tour is a great idea (also add the towers)

My favorite of the houses by Gaudi is Palau Güell, http://palauguell.cat/en Again: buy a ticket online as early as possible! - This house has recently been completely renovated.

Ten main Gaudi attractions in Barcelona: http://www.globotreks.com/destinations/ ... barcelona/

...

The Magic Fountains at Plaça Espanya (http://www.barcelona-tourist-guide.com/ ... -montjuic/) only operate from Thursday to Sunday, so you will have to see them on Sunday evening

Walking weekends rules clearly state that football is banned.
Considering the official program will end at the bus arrival to Barcelona on Sunday afternoon, I think there's no problem meeting to watch together the Bayern Munich-BVB match.

We have tables booked at the Rabbit hole at 17:30.
22, Carrer Nou de la Rambla

Strict dress code: black and yelow

Thanks Bea for all the arrangements!
I wonder if the Sunday dinner you have booked at 17:30 is too early???
If the bus will arrive in Barcelona around 16:30, most of us need first go to our hotels, to register and get rid of the luggage. After that we will need to get to Rabbit Hole.
I guess one hour for all that is a too short window???

After the Sunday dinner those who want could see the Magic Fountains (the show runs every 30 min between 21 and 23)
See you soon!
