Wonderful food, great scenery

Being on holiday does gives one permission to binge on food! We had lunch at a fancy restaurant called Can Fabes at Sant Celoni in Catalonia. A good 45- minute drive from our hotel. Grand and lovely seven course lunch (maybe there were more!). Alyona and I could do justice but not the kids. Can Fabes is recipient of 3 Michelin stars. We enjoyed some ravioli and pea soup. Kriti has every reason to burn off all the extra calories with her training that followed in the evening. It was a different venue called Calella (locals call it ‘Caleya’), a seaside town that has an ancient lighthouse overlooking it. Alyona commented she was transported to her Enid Blyton stories looking at the lighthouse!

We were a big bunch of people as there are other kids too training with Kriti and the twelve of us, kids and parents, drove down in a bus. Lovely scenes, lush green, along the way.

Saturday night we finally got the tickets for the famous Spanish Flamenco Show at the Castello Medival. Colourful to say the least…and very energetic dance sequences.
First they had some horse show and fights that were true Hindi movie style, a live band came on to play and last of all the Flamenco Show. As tomorrow Kriti does not have training, so going to Roses ( a place which is about 1 hour from here). We have a hired car and will drive down, lunch at a restaurant and maybe a bit of shopping…

Try some pasta and soup and be with us!
