Today, the two cranes are flying to Spain with Lufthansa – or, to be more precise, to Barcelona. Both have already heard a lot about the beautiful city on the seacoast in the northeast of Spain and are very excited about their first day there.
"I'd really like to eat tapas!" says an excited Lu when the plane lands. "Oh yes, I'd like to try them as well! I'm famished already!" replies Cosmo. "But – what are tapas actually?" Lu laughs out loud. "Tapas are small snacks. These can be quite different, delicious dishes such as meat balls, olives, potato omelettes or mussels, for example."
The two of them quickly jump into a taxi. "Hola", says Lu to the taxi driver. "What does that mean?" asks Cosmo with a curious look on his face. "That's Spanish and means Hello," Lu explains. After they drop their suitcases off at the hotel, they go to a small restaurant. "They have lots of tapas here. They are served in small portions. That way you can try many different things until you are full. I'll definitely have albondigas, these are small meat balls in tomato sauce," explains Lu.
As proper football fans, both of them make a quick stop-off at Camp Nou afterwards. This time Cosmo is well-informed, too: "Lu, isn't this the stadium where FC Barcelona is at home?" "That's right! I have a surprise for you... I organised two tickets for us!" Cosmo is thrilled and the two of them watch an exciting football game in the huge stadium.
"Thank you for the tickets, Lu! You truly are a great friend. Would you like to find a beach?" Cosmo asks. "Yes, of course, let's take the tram there!" Lu answers.
It doesn't take long until they arrive at the beach. They swim until both of them are completely exhausted and tired. "That was a fantastic day," finds Cosmo when they arrive back at the hotel. "I agree, Cosmo. Let's go to sleep now, I can hardly keep my eyes open. Buenas noches. Good night," whispers Lu to Cosmo, who has already drifted off into the land of dreams.
