Snowfights, barcelona and the Mountain Butcher.

Okay so i haven't updated since Sat, Ooooo horrifying isn't it?
SOme updates:
1) It SNowed all day from mid-day yesterday and we had snow fights last night with Quentin, Myself, Ken, damien , alex and one more guy. We were on the way out the house after playing Poker and Pool and suddenly we were wiping snow from all the cars and chucking it at each other like Kids for 15 minutes till our hands were really Red and numb.
2) The Cabin Crews from British Airways have decided to take a strike for 3 sets of days AND What Do Ya KNOW, the second set of Days from the 5th-7th, we are affected!!! cuz we leave on the 6th. HOPEFULLY negotiations will go thru' successfully and the strikes will only happen on the 29th-30th. Not only will it mean that we have to REBOOK our flights which they are allowing people, we hope to leave 2 days later but on a first come first serve basis. So if we don't get it, then who knows when the netx Bloody flight out is.
BAH! The Europeans and THEIR "RIGHTS!"
Beautiful Barcelona
Okay so besides that BARCELONA was BEAUTIFUL, absolutely breathtaking and i was in absolute awe of the city where buildings designed by Gaudi were impossible to the eye and unimaginable to the Mind. Some say he was on Magic Mushrooms when he designed the Park Guell. The most amazing piece of work that has taken 100 years in buliding and WON't be completed till 2025 is 'La Sagrada Familia', a huge Modern Day Church , its too complexed to explain, except i wanted to Cry at the sight. The longer you stare at it, the more details appear, like of those convuluted posters where teh image appears when your cross-eyed, hahaha.
One-Way road
Despite all its magnificent grandeur, there are the flaws. No:1, don' drive in Barcelona; because every road seems to be a one way, and theres somethin about europeans cities and those damned Roundabouts. This was worse than toulouse though, there were no roadmarkings, so everyone is scooting in and out about the roundabout.Ooo i'm rhyming.
Tell me about Getting OUT of the CIty, Jesus christ mother mary of god, Oh Lord oh Sweet Jesus.... Ever remember that scene in one of the Freddy Kruger's Elm Street, every which way they took they just arrived back at square one, Well thats EXACTLY how we felt. When we left the next day after touring and wanted to drive to the mountains to pick some stuff up at the cabins (where we snowboarded 'Les Angles'). We planned to leave BArcelona at 5.30pm but after trying to escape from the city we managed to find our way out from the one way streets, we got out at 6.30pm.
THEN, everyfucking highway sign and Exit had BArcelona, and we made about 3 wrong turns to hell , though the Sign showed the exit we needed to take. On top of that, we passed so many toll booths, we spend a bomb going back and forth the same toll booths. It gets worse.......
THe BLoodY Mountain Butcher
The keys to the Cabin we previously stayed in were in the hands of the local butchers, so we had probs with this son-of-a-mothers cow before, so we called an hour early to pickup the keys and agreed to get it from him around 9ish, after 2 hours or so driving there. Our plan was to pick our stuff up and at 9pm leave back to Toulouse (3hours drives) and be back around Midnight. It was real foggy and not as warm as Barci which was 20degrees by the way , crazy crazy for winter. We got there, and the Mo'fo did not pickup, so we ate some pizza and theyhappened to know the butcher boy. We ended up , sleeping in Q's tiny car, boys in front and me squished in the back till the next morning (Mon) and getting the keys from the dude, who wasn't sorry at all and had.
APPARENTLY left his HP at his Gf's. So well since we were on the way back we made a 2 hour stop in Carcassonne, a castle with some history to it, long story, but we hung around in the gusts and made out way back. What an adventure....Here are the piccies to prove our adventures.
