We sense from across the pond that our fans (meaning you, our dear friends) need news about the exciting nightlife here in Barcelona, which I can assure you is coming. This weekend is La Merce, Barcelona's biggest festival (see photo above) and we are heartily preparing for it by getting our sleep, doing our work and eating our vegetables.

Eating vegetables, or not so much, brings me to this posts' topic, "Spainfull." The term "Spainfull" refers to the feeling one gets after consuming delicious, greasy tapas but not having a satisfying sensation in the belly.

In addition, no one eats these mini-meals until 10PM, which is three to four hours late by my watch.

But the real question is, how does one get a daily dose vitamins by eating tapas?  It's a complete mystery maybe we'll crack in a few months. For now, until we get accustomed to just being "Spainfull," we've decided to prep for the night by consuming a salad around 8pm and then head out with the rest of the world for tapas.

P.S. Did I mention that I am insanely excited about the Human Tower Competition happening during Merce?


  1. That human tower competition looks AWESOME!! Take plenty of pics plz!!! Any trapeze leads?

    Glad to see that you guys are having a great time!!

  2. I miss you both. Billie is out camping at Steep Ravine but she will love your blog. Enjoy

  3. I may have to stop reading this fabulous blog because I am stirred to hit the Cheap flight sites every time!!! Look forward to all your updates...Deb

  4. Isn't it sad that the Mayflower filled with Puritans landed on the East Coast before the boat-loads of fiesta-loving Spaniards got there?
