French astronaut Thomas Pesquet writes that Barcelona is pretty in the morning light. It's a strangely monotone view from the ISS - maybe it's the time of year. Pesquet goes on to say
I drove there as a student, I flew there as a pilot. Always a good place to be. I know a really good restaurant there… let me find the street wink

And of course, he's now seen it from space. I'll be happy to see it again at ground level, especially the parks and gardens and the sea. A lovely city.
