Bullet train endangers Gaudi

Fears for Gaudi masterpiece as rail tunnel approved

These pictures are from our trip to Barcelona in 2004.

The proposed bullet train tunnel would be close enough (2 meters) to pose a real danger of cracking the foundation of Sagrada Familia. If that happens, apparently it’s possible the suspended ceiling would be affected.

Group shot at the Parc Guell (also designed by Gaudi). Quasi-son-in-law Matthew, Eileen in hat, Sarah.  It’s on the mountain and is where I took the first shot of Sagrada Familia.

Like all of Gaudi’s work, Sagrada Familia is amazing. Gaudi is a bit religous for me, but I love his use of organic forms. Dave, if you’re lurking, I trace my family’s interest in Gaudi back to you. I’m sure you are the one who showed me him years ago, probably upstais in the Flint library. Heh.

I really like this turtle who is one of several animals (I seem to recall) at the base of huge columns of Sagrada Familia.
