highlight of the day

today, we went to a number more places such as gaudi's park guell and sagrada familia....

* sagrada familia ~ not as tall as i had imagined.... long lines at the ticket gate to get inside as well as to get to the top of it (going up by lift and coming down by the stairway).... it was a bit scary when we got to the top. but could get closer to take pics of the towers. we had to walked hundreds of stairs to get down!!! the stairway was dark, narrow and very "spiral"!!! those who are afraid of height may not be able to go up.. it is said that it will be completed by 2030. i have taken some pics and video of the workers "at work"... think i am probably one of the few people who would take pics of the construction work site and stack of stones...

* park guell ~ too many people... not able to take good shots so we did't stayed too long. on our way down the slope to get back to the bus stop, bought a number of vintage lookalike postcards and magnets for friends and my sister-inlaw.... hahaha... shopping anytime, anywhere...

to me, the highlight of the day was our unexpected stop at the beach.... it was around sunset when we got there.... nice view of the shore. we then decided to have dinner at a restaurant along the beach before we ended back to the hotel...
