Although Elena Sparrow many times been Spain, the next vacation in this country has brought her many surprises. “In the beginning we (I was with my daughter and my dad) stayed at the roses, — said the actress. The weather was cool, even for the Mediterranean. But I insulated with jackets and thermal underwear, and every morning passed 7 kilometers — just enough took the road from the mountain where we lived, to sea and back.

Then we stopped in the town of
Camprodon, in which he was born a piano Prodigy-a child Prodigy and an outstanding composer of the 19th century, Isaac albéniz. I long loved his work based on Spanish melodies, and now visited his homeland.
Remember the figure of a stone lion. According to legend, if you kiss in the fifth
point, it will bring good luck in the new year. Had to kiss!

The most funny adventure turned out to be associated with a small restaurant in Girona. During the trip
this popular tourist town, we suddenly glued to the Navigator and we started circling
on the local streets. And then our guide said, “We just passed one of the
the best restaurants in the world”… it Turned out that expressionless facade of a small building hiding a restaurant with three Michelin stars, in which visitors recorded in 11 months! And of course, we really wanted to dine there.

Relying on chance, we decided to look there. The first thing
struck: no visitors except us, no soul! But the Maitre d ‘ immediately
we were told that “no seats and will not.” Had to be smart.
I started to tell the waiter that always dreamed about visiting this
restaurant while on holiday in Spain had been saving for many years. I spoke so convincingly that eventually completed the questionnaire and were included in the waiting list. But I insisted and offered to check, if someone refused the table. And “abandoned” the table was found, and even tomorrow. In the morning we called again and confirmed our reservation.

We arrived at the appointed time. Opening a tasting menu, I found just two pages of dishes
fixed price 180 and 220 euros. My inner “calculator vulgaris” instantly thought: three persons 180 euros 540 euros! And that’s without drinks…

We were offered champagne to start with,
but we asked for “a bottle of wine.” Right there on the table was a huge book, a wine menu. Already on the first page it wanted to close and all of a sudden
remember that “I’m on antibiotics”: the price starts from thirty
euros for a bottle and then grew exponentially. But I had not hit
face in the dirt, and we chose a bottle of forty euros…

In the end, lunch at the restaurant “three stars” left the impression: “great prices, and
the portions are small, but delicious!»
