As I read and write about artificial intelligence, perhaps I should think a bit more about real intelligence — like arithmetic. Construction of La Sagrada Familia began in 1882 and is expected to be completed in 2026 or 2028. How could something take more than 140 years to build? (not 40 years as originally posted) If you get to go see it, you will understand. The highest part of the church will be 500 feet tall. The details on the facades are mind boggling. Barcelona was a great experience. You could easily spend weeks there seeing the incredible architectures of Gaudi, the parks, and an abundance of good food. See some of our Barcelona photos here.
Many thanks to my friend Charlie for catching the arithmetic error. Thanks to all for reading my weekly e-brief. Tell your friends about it, and encourage them to subscribe.
