Lunch @ the '92 Olympic Pool Venue

Had a nice afternoon on Monjuic, the site of the '92 Olympic opening ceremonies, gymnastics, athletics, swimming, baseball and water polo. The museum was a great deal--only 4 Euros--and had a wonderful collection of video, photos and historical items (like Big Mig's time trial machine, above). There was also a neat display regarding the use of technology to catalogue every aspect of a futbol match.

We had lunch at the cafe overlooking the competition pool. The facility (sync swim pool, 50 m outdoor competition pool and 50 indoor pool, serve as part of the Barcelona Institute of Sport and a municipal recreation facility. You can swim, nude or not, in the '92 competition pool.
