The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca

The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

Hna. Hinckley Visits the Basque Country

On Tuesday, Hna. Hinckley flew to Bilbao for the day and had a productive visit, including lunch with the Hnas. in their piso. Among other things, she learned that the hermanas had been without hot water for two weeks, a period of time which they described as "an adventure." (The hot water has been repaired and is now working fine).

Hnas. Bennion and Boone enjoy a hearty pizza lunch in Bilbao, although Hna. Bennion seems a little unsure about the quality of the food!
