Back in 2008, I took a trip to Cadaqués, an idyllic Mediterranean town on the Costa Brava. I posted about it in retrospect some years later, here. Last week, my sisters were (both!) visiting Barcelona for the first time ever, and we went back, so wander the gravelly beach, feel the sun reflected back upon us from the whitewashed buildings, and visit Dalí's crazy/delightful house in neighboring Portlligat. Having been reading Josep Pla's lyrical history of Cadaqués, I looked upon it with different eyes, knowing about the centuries of struggle behind the idyllic exterior, the winds that drive people mad, the fishing treaties, the origin of the funny accents, the piracy!

How wonderful it must have been to have both your sisters visiting! I bet you were thrilled beyond measure :)

Emily: I was! Although as usual when my family visits it was at a time of absolute chaos, working all the time, moving, sorting out various dramas, so it wasn't exactly as fun or relaxing as I'd anticipated. Oh well, life is like that...
