morocco and switzerland come to barcelona

We have had lots of visitors! This week my Mum's cousins Carey and Lindsay came to see us from Rabat, Morocco and Lausanne, Switzerland respectively. Lindsay is named after my Granny Lindsay who is her godmother and they are from South Africa originally, so they also sound like my Granny Lindsay.

Dad made his special paella!

It was great to meet them, beacause even though I did meet Lindsay 6 years ago when she came to see me in Barcelona I didn't remember her. After dinner we ate some special chocolate that Lindsay brought from Switzerland.
Carey brought us these slippers from Morocco They are called babouches. The little yellow ones are for Leo.

We all went to see the Magic Fountain of Montjuic, which was built in 1929 for the Great Universal Exposition. The fountain is set to music and lit with different colours and it really is a little bit magic!

After we saw the fountain we went for a 'late' dinner at a groovy restaurant called Flash Flash in Gracia that has been opened since the 1970s.

One of the best things about coming to Spain has been meeting my family!

with likes,

Ooh I love those shoes from Morocco. It's funny because I gave Leo some yellow shoes from Greece!! So now he has 2 pairs of shoes. Maybe he could start a collection of ethnic shoes from different countries! They have to be yellow ones though .... what do you think Phoebe? Is that a good idea?
How lovely to meet up with some relations and get to know them. You must be having so much fun.
I like the look of your Dad's paella.
Love from Mary

It all sounds and looks so fantastic. I got a postcard from your Mum last week, which was great to hear how you are all going.

Keep enjoying yourself. Big hugs to everyone.

Hi Girls,
what beautiful pictures of the fountains.
Meeting family is always special and even though you won't see them every week you'll build up some really special memories of all the times you do meet them.
Love Grandma Chris
