Valencia -- what a beautiful city! We flew there on Wednesday via the very efficient Czech Airlines. A plus for all of us was that the concert hall was walking distance from the hotel. A negative is that in Spain, you can't find any food until about 7:30 p.m.
But when I got to the hall, I noticed it had a beautiful atrium facing the fountains in the Turia Gardens, where there were two big bars and tables where people were eating tapas, having coffee or wine. This is something that has been sorely lacking in Music Hall, yet every single hall we have visited here has a cafe or nice bar with sandwiches, cake, tapas, drinks...
Here's a link to the review from Valencia.
By the way, there should be some photos from Paris, Dortmund and Hamburg up on our interactive Web site by now, I hope. Someone else is posting those for me.
