833. Barcelona. Park Güell

Dear Dennis,

"...When dawn broke, they started to wander about 
the forest, seeking a path, but all hope soon faded. 
They were well and truly lost. On they walked and 
walked, till suddenly they came upon a strange cottage 
in the middle of a glade.

"This is chocolate!" gasped Hansel as he broke a lump 
of plaster from the wall.

"And this is icing!" exclaimed Gretel, putting another 
piece of wall in her mouth. Starving but delighted, the 
children began to eat pieces of candy broken off the 

"Isn't this delicious?" said Gretel, with her mouth full. 
She had never tasted anything so nice.

"We'll stay here," Hansel declared, munching a bit of 
nougat.  They were just about to try a piece of the biscuit 
door when it quietly swung open..." 
(Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, Hansel and Gretel)  

Best wishes,
