July 4–9: Tour de France

The Tour de France came through Barcelona while we were there. I hadn't really known that the Tour de France ever went outside France itself.

My desk setup in the apartment. Compact, but it worked fine.

As final reviews approached, we worked a good amount up on the roof terrace, as it was warm enough at night to be comfortable staying still. The full moon was a bonus on this night.

On the Tour day, we all went to watch, as it was a short walk from studio to the Passeig de Colom here. It was a damp day.
