Just back from a quick trip to Barcelona and Vic in Catalonia (Spain). Although the main aim was research, so most of the time was spent in libraries, I still managed to fit in some tasty food! The fresh produce at this market in Vic was exceptional:
And, on my last day, I sat and enjoyed a set menu in the sunshine. So for the total of 10 euros I enjoyed... firstly, a bean stew:
Secondly, a fish dish (which was heavenly but not particularly photogenic, so will spare you the sight of it); and thirdly, a little dish of strawberries:
I should have joined the locals and danced a Sardana to work it all off! This pic was taken in Vic's main square, in fact, after the market had closed a music band from nearby Girona arrived and started to play. The Sardana is a sedate circle dance, and although there appears to be some etiquette involved, people just popped up to the circle and joined the dance as and when.
