I didn't see absinthe on the menu. But Bob and I had drinks (poor Bob...he had to endure "the local swill" throughout the trip, although he did find a small place in Barcelona that sold bottled somewhat-local microbrews), Ryne ordered the classic Spanish treat - chocolate y churro
These are not American churros. Lighter texture, hot from the fryer, sugared (no cinnamon) - a far cry from those fried pastry sticks you can use in a sword fight in a pinch. And this is not your American hot chocolate! A mug of what was basically melted semi-sweet chocolate is what defeated Ryne in the end. He couldn't finish it.
