Kasey (from Barcelona’s Bread and Butter Fashion Tradeshow):
“Hello dear sister,
I just met the loveliest couple based here in BCN, and they have two cats that need watching while they go away for a couple of weeks... Said you might be interested since you're holed up writing your dissertation anyway... They have a house near the beach....”
Ms. Spice (from London):
“Ummm… should I think long and rationally about this proposition? Probably, I'm sure, but never mind that. Tell them yes! Definitely yes! Before they find someone else!"
For better or worse, my modus operandi has always been to avoid looking gift horses with a travel pedigree in the mouth when it can at all be helped... I leave next week.
And if any of you out there have any strong or mild opinions about what I should do/see/eat/avoid-like-the-plague while in this Catalonian province - do share!
