Back To Barcelona!

July 24, 2009

Feels like coming home.

It’s ninety degrees Fahrenheit, people on the street are smiling, and I’m back at my favorite café, ordering the usual: best hummus salad this side of Switzerland.

It’s so good to be back.

Today I was gonna post about a letter I wrote to one of my favorite authors.  Someone whose books actually altered the course of my life in a meaningful way. I was really jazzed about it, but now…now I’m still excited, but I want to take my time.  Ease back into the city, enjoy the gorgeous day here.  So we’ll save that particular goodness for Monday.

Enjoy the weekend, y’all!  Especially your favorite haunts.

love,

Mixed greens, carrots, cherry tomatoes, sprouts (sprouts! in Spain! praise heaven). Creamy, delicious, fresh hummus. Sesame seeds. Lots of olive oil. Excitement.

Chatted with this lovely woman a while back, outside the café.  She's seen some hard times, drugs and homelessness, but has this real warmth about her.  Meeting her was a pleasure.

    Hey Katie, I’ve been lurking around on here for the last week or so and figured I’d better show myself. Reading about your travels is so inspiring! It’s really helping me get excited for planning my own international adventure next year.

    Nice to see ya,
    Elisa

    Elisa! Wow, thank you so much for delurking — it’s great to hear from you! (And also literally “hear” from you: listening to your latest radio show at this very moment. Dean Martin + Peter Salett = fabulous.)

    Wishing you best of luck with your plans — where are you heading? And what inspired the traveling? Maybe if you haven’t already skipped town by then, we could have some NorCal face time over tea when I come home…

    Jen, Barcelona misses y’all, too. But is better for you having been here.

    And Dad, I’m so excited that you’re coming. Today I’m buying a second fan so that you and Mom won’t expire from the heat when you visit my apartment. ;)

    Much love to everybody…and now off to some iced tea and readin’.

    Best wishes from northern Germany,
