Olot | June 16, 2009

We took the train to Olot early this morning. The first thing on the agenda was to see the office FOA (Foreign Office Architects). One of the principals showed us around the office and had a great conversation with us in their conference room. They do a lot of great work and it was nice to see first hand the environment where all of that gets produced.

We then went to have one of the best meals I’ve ever had at Les Cols. The restaurant is a rehabbed historic building designed by FOA and it was pretty amazing. The restaurant made special accommodations for us as a student group and gave us a discounted rate of 20 euros a person.

The restaurant is also a hotel of sorts with really expensive outdoor rooms, but again quite impressive. Nothing like you would expect in the states.

We spent the last part of the day wandering through a remote part of town that had some stunning landscapes. We ended up enjoying it a little too long and some of us missed the bus ride home, mainly due to an incompetent taxi service, but the few that got left behind caught a train just a short while after us, so it worked out.
