    Thanks a lot for taking the time to share all these photos with us. Dalí's house has to be one of the highlights of your trip (for me, it would be THE highlight). I haven't been there since 1991, but I must find the time to visit it again.

    I've never seen a photo of Dalí with a Gretsch, but this is the closest I know:



    I wonder where that painting is now.

    Thanks for sharing all these photos, gives the urge to go there too.

    Better play the violin that a Gretsch in there: all the Gretsch's bling would look cheap!

    We loved the food in Spain! Here is a paella that we had for dinner one evening at an outdoor table at a restaurant in Barcelona.

    Thanks to the tip from @Henry we visited the Dali Museum in Figueres today, on our way to Girona. The weather was cold and raining so it was perfect timing to be indoors at the museum.

    Wonderful pictures. Though I've been there myself a few years back, I see lots of new things.

    Actually, it's more "normal" than I expected.

    Great photos, never been to the Dali museum but it looks like it's worth the trip.

    Same thoughts here: the garden meets my expectations, but the inside of the house looks very bourgeois.

    Girona (M-m-m-my Girona) Apologies to the Knack! We are staying in the historic old town. Weather not great, raining all night and morning but sun is now shining again this afternoon. A few pics from our immediate vicinity.

    It's a holiday here today for the National day of Catalonia, so most shops are closed but the restaurants are still open. Came across this band playing in the street mall:

    Stopped at a restaurant for a drink and found some Aussie beer (Coopers from South Australia) They even had Vegemite on the menu :eek::eek::cool:

    My camera has suffered a serious malfunction, jammed lens opening mechanism! Luckily Mrs A had a tiny credit card-size Nikon in her bag as backup. Don't want to use my iPhone for photos because every time I turn it on I get slugged enormous $$$ in data roaming charges! The mini-Nikon seems to doing alright. I'm hoping I can get my Canon fixed in Barcelona.
