We were late out of Newark taking off. We were half way to the runway wher they discovered that an instrument was not working. We pulled into a parking area and a tech came on board and replaced the bad boy. We took off at 10:45 instead of 9:30. The flight was probably less than 1/2 full. We found out how to take the bus into Barcelona which was 8 euros instead of a cab (35 euros). Unfortunately we missed our departure stop due to not understanding the driver but we had only a slightly longer walk to the hotel which is very nice. We are on the 3rd floor (floor 2). Our room is quite large with 11 foot ceilings, a bath and all we need. Next door we found a nice cafe and had calimari and an open face thinly sliced ham sandwhich and San Miguele beer which was very good. Mommy is sleeping since she could not on the plane. My plane ride was very short with dinner right after takeoff and breakfast shortly before landing when I woke up.
