Dr. Bob in Europe November 2006

I'm on a four-university swing through Europe: Bocconi in Milan, the European University in Forence, Univerista Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, and the London School of Economics .

The Duomo

I took the 143 steps to the roof, crowded wtih Asian tourists. Bad weather scared away the Americans

Our Lady of Perpetual Construction--Gaudi's Temple de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

House of the Spikes--Casa de les Punxes

Gaudi's best apartment house--Casa Mila

My hotel and neighboring building--characteristic graceful Catalan domestic architecture
