Phil Ball in Spain

Interesting to be in Barcelona, the day of the Madrid derby and the day after the city's more famous team (with apologies to Espanyol) had won a difficult looking match (0-1) over the water in Mallorca. Not that they were too interested in such matters at the Cornella El Prat, out on the southern outskirts of the city. It's a five-minute drive from the airport, but it costs an arm and a leg by taxi because of the minimum charge of €20, wherever you choose to go. In a light-hearted protest to the driver, I make the point that you would expect nothing less from the Catalans, upon which he tells me that he's from Andalucia. Ah, the globalised world!
