Now For A Dose Of Dali - The Figueres Bit.

Waiting for the 9.17am to Figueres.
All Spanish and French trains leave and arrive to the minute.
In fact the Barcelona underground tells you to the second what time it will arrive.

Figueres is a one and half hour train trip north of Barcelona.
The only reason anybody would go to Figueres is to visit the Dali Museum.
Dali bought the old theatre and remodelled it himself so as to create a living monument to his work. However it is not a staid old museum, but interactive and a lot of fun.

This Mae West portrait is an actual room set up in the museum.

Dali explored many optical effects, including this effect and stereo-optical illusions. Among other things, he considered himself to be a scientist, and explored the atomic world through his paintings. 

I love Dali. 
The consummate showman, whose exquisite craftsmanship allow him to explore and play with many different realms of painting, drawing and sculpture. 
His output was prodigious. 
His imagination knew no boundaries.
