Flower market on the street. Stopped for a cappuccino and a roll on the way. Cute bakery.
Went to the train station to secure a train ticket for Monday to go to Valencia. After much waiting we booked a couple of seats on the 12:40 train. So, we will check out of here, and take off for the sea. Train stations are huge...immense...gigantic. We have nothing to compare them to.
More walking. Then we got to the museum. This museum claim to fame is Spanish Art from 1900 to present, but the highlight is that it houses the Guernica by Picasso.
This painting depicts the horrors of the Nazi bombing of the Basque town of Guernica in 1937 during the Spanish civil war. Very moving. Notice among all the carnage at the bottom is a flower coming out of the sword. That shows hope for the future. It is a monumental work and we are both so glad that we got to see it in person.
Other interesting art in the museum was:

|Winged victory in blue velvet!|
We were tired, but decided to walk back up the hill that we taxied up yesterday. Yes, we are that dumb. Anyway, we made it back to 5 Eustidos and rested for a while.
Out for dinner at a new place called Mar and Ola which specializes in fresh seafood. It was really good even though, Sara, the shrimps still had their heads on. Yum!
|Mussels with vegetables as a start|
|Such a cute place. 9 tables|
|Razor clams in garlic. I didn't know about this but they were great.|
|the shrimps....sorry for the bad picture.|
|This is the fish fillet knife the guy was using. Where would you keep something like that?|
|Paella - Can't wait for Valencia|
