Waking Up In Barcelona

We both got back to sleep after a post-midnight fit of jet lag, and slept through until 8:00 a.m. or maybe later.

During our walk late yesterday afternoon we wanted a little snack to hold us over until morning. We found Viena, and enjoyed light sandwiches made with panini-style bread.

The chain boasts an impressive website and touts the positive mention in the New York Times

This morning the breakfast buffet, included for us as Starwood Platinum, was quite decent. We tried to make the coffee machine work for us, by combining expresso with Americano - modest success.

Now it's time for a walk. We noticed the trams at least are running, despite the strike, but we'll probably stay fairly near the hotel, given that the Diagonal area is a nice neighborhood.

We have to take a photo or two of the impressive display of hams for sale in the nearby Carrefour supermarket. No, it's not too early in the morning to be thinking about food.
