On Bailen just above Diagonal. Cheap Menu del Dia at €9.50. Not much variety but more than edible.

I had the the chance of visiting CE Sabadell's Nova Creu Alta Stadium on Saturday. My brother's English veterans were playing against Sabadell Veterans on the nearby training ground.
Sabadell were away against Murcia so the ground was closed. I took the opportunity of taking a few photos of outside the ground. Then we went for a beer in the Sabadell Penya bar just across the road.

|My Brother Joe - Veteran English Footballer|
|Sabadell Training Ground from the road|
There were photographers and local TV cameras there because CE Sabadell were under the impression they were playing against Bristol Rovers veterans.
It was a cold night and the match started an hour late so I only stayed for 20 minutes. They were already 2-0 down when I left.
The other problem was that, as I speak Catalan and was obviously mates with the team, the local Sabadell fans wanted the lowdown on these veteran English 'stars' - I didn't have the heart to tell them that it was really our kid and a few of his mates on a weekend piss up
Apparently, they were 8-0 down at half-time - only 8 - was my comment when Joe texted me the score.
The interesting thing is, though, it got me started on the germ of an idea - Organising Football Tours in the Barcelona Area.
It seems to me that a lot of groups of blokes would love to have the opportunity of having a kick around against a team in Barcelona or anywhere else in Spain for that matter!

I must admit it's kinda difficult coping with this game.
I suppose I was pleased when Cristiano Ronaldo scored but I can't say I was unhappy when Bayern got one back.

This is me in the bathroom just after we'd lost in the Champions League semi-final against Chelsea. Note the shirt is a sexy 1992 version - it's got Koeman 4 on the back and I really like the club crest!.
Shame about the result .... FORÇA BARÇA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

El Capricho by Gaudi, a photo by simonharrisbcn on Flickr.
Located in Comillas in Cantabria, El Capricho is one of the few buildings that Antoni Gaudí constructed outside Catalonia.
We visited on an extremely wet day so really didn't get a chance to get the best out of it.
The colours are gorgeous and I can imagine that it must be a delight to walk round it on a bright summer's day.
Os Ancares Terrace, a photo by simonharrisbcn on Flickr.
I took this photo around 11 o'clock, so it's not surprising that Os Ancares terrace empty ... the breakfast crowd have gone to work and the lunchtime punters haven't arrived yet.
Great place to have lunch if the weather's nice ... menu €10.20 ... and the food's pretty good!!
