And back to Barcelona (Aug 30th)

We woke up docked back in Barcelona.  We had to have our luggage packed and outside our cabin door by 10 p.m. last night so we could make a quick disembarkation at 8:00 a.m.

We enjoyed our last breakfast in the Windjammer Cafe.  Stacey, our evening wait staff was working in the Windjammer that morning. 

They work incredibly hard and most of the staff on board from all over the world (their name badges show their country of origin) are working on the ship seven months at a time with no days off.  Our two wait staff were there to send money home to family.  When Stacey shared her story, I cried.  She is a single mom with two girls, aged 3 and 11.  She hails from Jamaica.  Her mom is caring for her children while she is here serving us,  excellently I might add.  She is absolutely delightful and gave us her undivided attention throughout the cruise.

I won't forget her.

Tomorrow we have a reservation to visit the Sagrada Familia, the famous church designed by Antoni Gaudi.  It is still under construction and not expected to be complete until 2026.

Looking forward to that!  Until then, time to rest up from all that walking.
