First off, on the hotle front, the bed was comfortable (and not sot) leading to a good night’s sleep.  Breakfast was a Euro-generic buffet, not much choice, but not too bad.  The one down side to this place that’s been highlighted this morning is that there is just one small slow lift for all seven floors.  Being top floor means once I’m in it’s not too bad, but on the way down to breakfast we stopped at 4 other floors, with people left waiting for next time.

I’ve now had to check the weather forecasts as it’s dull outside.  Apparently it should be a comparitively mild day, though sunny, so my original plans are still on.  I’ll give it a short while for safety as I do want bright daylight for the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell – if it’s going to be grey then I’ll hit Barri Goitic, La Ribera, and La Rambla instead.
