We had a chance to taste the wines at Perafita, high in the hills overlooking the terraces. The Perafita wines are always good and it was fun assessing each wine according to our tastes. The young Perafita guide had excellent knowledge and greatly enhanced our visit. What a beautiful spot. If you don't have somewhere to stay, they even have a bed and breakfast.
A coffee at Cap de Creus, the eastern most point of the Iberian peninsula, finished the tour. It is always beautiful to see the strange eroded rocks and the wonderful little rocky coves.
The Dali museum in Figueres always has long lineups at this time of the year. Fortunately, our friend found the information office, where for a few euros more than the regular admission he bought tickets for a guided tour that was leaving right away. This saved them standing in the 40 degree celsius heat. Definitely worth it.
It is always fun to see old friends, to share reminisces, some good wine and have a lot of laughs. We hope they enjoy the rest of their trip around Spain.
This afternoon started with a lot of thunder rumbling in the distance. Finally, it moved this way accompanied by some cooling rain. A bit of respite from the heat at last.
