Throw away the winter coats, bring out the sunglasses, we are in Spain! First stop Figueres, surrealist paradise in Catalonia, home of Salvador Dali. And this is where we introduce Baby to art.
We took easy by visiting Dali’s house in Cadaqués first: green hills, light sea breeze, eggs on the roof. Baby seemed to enjoy every bit of it. No wonder, being carried around like royalty by Daddy, while Mummy pushed the stroller up and down the impossible slopes. Always take a baby carrier to unknown terrain. Always.
After this light intro, Baby was finally about to visit his first art gallery – Dalí’s Theatre-Museum in Figueres. This time in his carrier (the museum is not suited for strollers at all), he was welcomed with smiles and Spanish baby talk. Both, the building and art are fantastic. And Baby? If he was awake, he would have totally enjoyed it. Children are often better suited to understand Dali’s art than adults.
Side story to complete the surreal experience: in one of the little streets in Cadaqués, we overheard an English conversation between an old lady and a young couple: “Maybe you are able to help me…in my room, there is blood everywhere…my cat is just lying there on the floor…” We have to come back one day to hear the rest of the story.
