If you didn't know better you'd assume Sitges was just another pleasant Spanish seaside resort (below, right). But back in 2000 I knew better.
I knew the old monster was still here somewhere, dormant but not dead. I didn't know exactly where it was, but I'd seen it from the sky, knew I could find it. I asked in the tourist office where at first I got blank faces, then another lady trying to explain to me how to get to the Formula 1 track in Barcelona and pointing out that I'd missed the race, that it was yesterday.
Sure, I'd missed the race, but not by a day. I'd missed it by 77 years and it wasn't in Barcelona, it was right here. A man came from another office out back, there was a discussion with the lady as they glanced over towards me.
