...because Vegemite was lost, but now has been found again...

 ...thanks to shared information, a store that sells Vegemite in Barcelona has been located.  And not only do they sell Vegemite, also Marmite, TimTams, Baked Beans and even meat pies.  I love Spanish food but sometimes it is nice treat to have a Taste of Home!

...not because of the first day of summertime...

... the clocks might have changed last night to summer time, but the weather certainly didn't!

No besos today Barcelona!

...because BunBo is a quick visit to Vietnam...


... and yet just around the corner from the Catedral. Bun Bo with its beautiful lanterns, bright colours and a view (photo)to Hulong Bay,  makes for a great getaway on a Winters night and a place to warm up with some spicey vietnamese food.  I love asian food and I am always happy when I find another (delicious) asian restaurant.

...because of the oldest cafe in Eixample....

...Cafe del Centre is the oldest remaining cafe in Eixample , 1873.
Eixample was constructed from 1860 when the Medieval walls encircling the old town were pulled down to allow for the expansion (eixample  Catalan  and ensanche in Castellano)of Barcelona.
To enter Café del Centre is to step back into another era (modernista) and you can feel and see the history.  It continues to be somewhere to catch up for a coffee or a wine, to read one of their books or to listen to someone play the piano... or even write a blog!
