huerto 3

A little petrol in the generator.

Every night, some petrol on the shoe and some wood on the fire to get dinner ready.

But now it's all over.

Casa Mila

This is the Casa Mila, by Gaudi.  Also known as 'la Padrera', or 'the quarry'

We spent our last day today at our farm outside of Sant Pere de Ribes, in Los Valles Altos.  Our boss was an expat from the UK who took off for france our second day.  She was in the process of moving so we packed up boxes and boxes of dusty books for her.  there was another french girl staying with us who could only speak french and Spanish, so in our three languages we got by pretty well.  It was quiet up there, we found some old elvis tapes and drank coffee endlessly.  Some video to come with that.

Should be home soon, though I wish I could stay forever!

love to all

From Vilanova

Kyra and I are staying in Vilanova, outside of Barcelona.  We are with a great family who put us up last minute, they saved our lives.

This is a day trip we took into Barcelona to see Sagrada Familia.  It's the first of many videos to come about Gaudi (you're in luck rugnetta). 

We'll be working on a farm soon (not the one in granada, they turned out to be jerks).

We're doing well otherwise, the farm thing through us for a loop, but now we're back on our feet.
