be right back

Photo source

Happy belated Easter, everyone! Sorry for going AWOL the last week, but I'm having major issues amalgamating and backing-up five years of photos from my computer... I had actually used 100% of my memory as of this morning, and it's all a bit haywire! I'll be back hopefully tomorrow with photos from a great weekend road trip to the South of France/North of Catalonia.

Above is a Barcelona Easter tradition... the bakeries all sell "Monas," which are chocolate sculptures or cakes, and Escribà, a large bakery in the centre, sets out to outdo itself every year with an especially large and crazy one for the shopfront window. This year's was an enormous Chinese dragon to celebrate the "Any del drac." Loving dragons and chocolate in similar measure, I was well impressed!

Wishing you all a good week!

Oh man, I know how the backing-up process can go. I was trying to do that with my photos & itunes a while back and it was such a mess! Hopefully you get it all figured out. I can't wait to see your photos from the South of France! I've been missing France so much lately.

I've never heard of that tradition- very cool. That dragon is impressive.

uh oh! Good luck sorting it out. I use a separate hard drive for my photos. It isn't too big to travel with and helps to keep your computer space free. Looking forward to your South of France photos! Fingers Crossed

I always love the little cultural insights you throw into your blog posts :) I discovered hot cross bun flavoured easter eggs this easter...who knew my two favourite things had been amalgamated..so it was a most excellent easter :) Speaking of amalgamation...good luck with the pics. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming travel pics :)

I think this is a first! Filled up the memory!? I have an external drive and periodical have my "technician" (read stepson) back up documents, photos, videos. Hope the situation rights itself soon.

Oh man, I've been thinking about doing that too before I'm actually forced to!

That is one impressive dragon. Look at its teeth! hehe
