MWC barcelona day 0 - Cildo Meireles Art and the fabulous Sagrada Familia

Had a fantastic day getting settled into Barcelona, got quickly registered and then went on to explore the city. After a great coffee and omelette we visited the Musee d’Art for some hit and miss art, although we were absolutely blown away by the sink in the red room of Red Shift – this piece really created an incredible emotion within, something that’s difficult to describe other than being a must see. Alistair Spooke gives the Tate Modern showing of the collection justice in his review. Following that experience, we wandered around the charming back streets around the Cathedral, stopped of for a great lunch before seeing the eclectic Sagrada Familia.

All well relaxed and set up for tomorrow’s first day of the MWC …
