Francisco and Anita have put us up for 4 days. It has been great to have a base and people with local knowledge. They live in an apartment just to the south of Barcelona - it is light and airy. The little girls are very cute and most of the times are good friends until about an hour before bedtime. ´Happy Hour´as Anita calls it! They were shy for the first day but now they talk to us all the time. We can only understand half of it though - I´m sure they think we are really stupid spanish people when we don´t give the right answers.
Francisco and Anita helped us buy 2 mobile phones today and have given us lots of advice with places to see, timetables, phone number and general information which take visitors and especillay toursit a long time to work out. The phones are just for spain so we can keep in touch with each other and Max can have a little independence and freedom without getting lost forever. Max bought some sunglasses and a t-shirt so he look like a local now.
The time difference has not been any trouble at all coming this direction - it feels like compulsory sleeping-in each day. The biggest difference we are all finding are the times of the meals. Breakfast is about 10.30, lunch- the main meal is about 4.00pm and then a light evening meal at 9.30ish. I cooked today - fish, rice and salad - I thin they liked it.
