if I won the Blog O's...

Killired is hosting the last Blog Olympic Training Camp before the announced hiatus!

Here is your official invitation to come to my virtual party, it doesn't matter if you participate in the Blog Olympics or not:

If I won the Blog Olympics!

I will be pleased to welcome you all here in this Olympic city. Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games in 1992. As part of the party we will of course tour the city and the Olympic stadium, seeing the wonderful communications tower (see pic), one of the landmarks of the Olympic Games 1992, designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. In case you are interested, see some images of his amazing works here.
Update: OMG, look at this!

You will get all kind of printed information and all important links so that we can concentrate on the important things in life: fiesta!

The best place to host a summer Blog Olympic party is the beach, let's all go the Mediterranean since Barcelona has many beaches to offer. And maybe I can even get a hold of these people to play some drums for us (drum roll, pls!)

There will be Spanish specialties of course! Different tapas including the delicious Spanish tortilla pictured above, also known as Spanish omelette. Find a recipe here and a whole list of them here. There will also be all kind of beverages available, beginning with sangria . If you have any particular wishes, pls let me know and I will try my best to have it ready for the party, specially for you!

Here's a helpful glossary of meaning of Spanish food terms in English in case I am busy and you wonder what's being served!! Look forward to a fun party which doesn't have to end with the sunset!
