|Gaudi + buildings = Barcelona = Magnificence|
We flew into Barcelona on the afternoon of Good Friday, and took a train into the city passing by fields of artichokes and agricultural pack-houses, and arriving to drizzle and disorientation at La Plaza de Cataluña. We knew we were just off La Rambla (one of the major pedestrian areas and a tourist mecca), and we knew our hostel/hotel was just off La Rambla. Unfortunately though, we didn't really know in which direction La Rambla was.

Two of my favourite bands, Radiohead and TV on the Radio have released albums in the last few months, and I am bitterly disappointed to report that neither offering is mind-blowingly, jaw-droppingly awesome. All winning streaks must come to an end, and all things must past, but such knowledge doesn't really soften the blow all that much.

What you're looking at, in the photo to the left, is the kitchen of the oldest sausage hut in Germany. And how good are the sausages cooked in this kitchen, in a small hut in the city of Regensburg, sitting on the banks of the Danube (called Regensburgers of course)? Served in a caraway laced bun with 'kraut and strong Bayern sweet mustard, they are absolutely delicious, good enough I had 'em twice!

...more than three months, which is rather disgraceful given this was my one pet project for our time in Germany. Worse is that there are several drafts sitting unpublished, just waiting for photos or a little tidying, but without a time machine there's little can be done now.
