We cooked our last meal in our little apartment in Badalona. We bought salmon from our favourite local fish shop and tried to say good bye. We finished the rice, the olive oil from Granada, the vinegar, cracked black pepper and Spanish paprika. We also used the last of the bay leaves from Lleida, the rosemary from Park Güell and the thyme from Aix-en-Provence.
I have enjoyed scouring public gardens and parks for fresh herbs – they always taste better.
Now it is just stuffing everything into our bags for the last journey home.
