Back to Guell

Several hours have passed and my friends and I are back in the area of Parc Guell, still too early for our 5.30 – 6pm entry time. Even my ‘souvenir shopping’ friends have exhausted the junky gift shops now and we are little peckish, so tempted by a shady garden we settle for a quick snack and some sangria.
At last it’s our turn! gue1

to get closer to these intriguing buildings.

that I really fall in love with. The Sala Hipostila was originally intended to be a market hall.

There was even a very beautiful young bride and her groom, imagine getting married there, although escaping the crowds would be difficult.

and I have some more photos to show you from Parc Guell, so I’ll be back.

Lovely Lichens

 


I don’t know anything about lichen, but Jude asked me about the ones in my area recently, so when I saw these yesterday I thought of her.
They may all be the same type, but they are pretty aren’t they? I didn’t edit the colours, some were very bright.
