#541 Mas Petit @ La Bisbal d'Emporda

Mas Petit garden

We are here:
about 25km west of Girona in Catalonia
for about two weeks.
Mas Petit common room

Waiting for the bill at our newest favourite restaurant La Vil-la de Corçà
We visited Salvador Dali's wife Gala's castle in Pubol, not far from where we are staying. Not very Dali-ish except for this glass topped coffee table that looks down into the room below. Photo by rhl130 on Panoramio
Monells - a local village
At Restaurant Ibèric in Ullastret a nice kitsch tapestry-clad pot that Greyson Perry *might* have been proud of ;-)

Last day in Emporda, we stopped at the most amazing booze supermarket you have ever seen. Thousands of bottles of every sort of Wine, Spirit, Apéritif and Digestif you can think of. 

Made a load of impulse purchases so we are now set right up to, and including, the Christmas festivities. The pic above shows only a part of the Gin division.

#540 Faith

We went to see Carrie in a theatre production of Faith, which she and her actor friends jointly wrote and produced. The theme was the word Faith and there were references to George Michael's hit single plus other sketches based around faith. Plus, between each sketch a video screen showed short interviews with people who where asked to explain their conception of the word. It was V Good!

#538 Wine & Cheese

Nearly our last meal in France. A Loire red and a local goats milk cheese that we bought at the farm.
