Si, he disfrutado mucho de la visita de Silvia y su madre. Al principio fue aprehensivo que una señora de tantos años no se ponga a quejar, que lo típico de señoras de avanzada edad. Pero se lanzó a hacer todas las visitas; Santes Creus, que le encantó, y los demás monasterios, donde Poblet la impresionó por su tamaño y la belleza de las alrededores. Las llevé a restaurantes un poco más modestos (10€ el menu con bebida,postre y café incluido), y quedaron sorprendidas que se come mejor por aquí que en Barcelona.
Siempre estoy dispuesto a llevar a visitar los muchos sitios interesantes por aquí a gente que se encantan y disfrutan tanto como esas buenas señoras venezolanas. Creo que el equipamento que menciona refiere al cabina ducha con sauna turco que tenemos en el tercer cuarto de baño en la planta baja al lado de la sala de yoga.
Como está haciendo mucho calor ahora en la costa, yo me quedo en mi pueblo sobre un monticulo, fresco y bien aireado. Todo un placer.
