The old church that sits in the middle of Sitges
The beach and promenade
Although it was hotter than Florence at least you could cool off in the sea and I managed to go for a swim every day - very pleasant to swim in the sea without a wetsuit - unheard of in Wellington, even in the middle of summer.
The conference was much smaller than Goldschmidt (only 600 people) - a much more manageable size. Although I still didn't manage to catch up with everyone that I wanted to over the week. It was held in a large hotel and was a great venue with excellent food and the organisers did a great job of providing some local entertainment - including human towers and catalan drummers.
The human towers - only the little kids that climb to the very top where helmets!
