Update 4: Barcelona and Gaudi



Gaudi was an innovative, imaginative, creative architect of parks, buildings, homes, even churches. He died in a traffic accident over 80 years ago and the church is only now being completed. I watched with fascination as craftspeople worked carefully on the plaster detail before it was lifted into place. It was a magic time, then suddenly, the spell was broken as they put down there tools and all went to lunch!

The pictures are of Parc Guell, a public open space and a reception pavillion at the entry, and the interior of a home. What a home! I tried imagining living in it. I wished we had more time to REALLY experience Gaudi.
