The money raised from food could potentially go to the biketour or something else which those who take on food decide. If we don't open the social area we could still show a film in the social centre.

Getting to Can Masdeu

Can Masdeu is in Barcelona, a 10 minute walk from public transport – bus or Metro. To cycle there find your route to Canyelles Metro and see the local map here

By Metro: L3 (the green line) <M> Canyelles. Bikes are welcome on the metro.

From the metro station go 200m West to Plaça Karl Marx. Pass the clinic STAUROS. take your first right, go 100m uphill to the end, take a right, go 50m uphill. There at the back of the clinic is a dirt road going uphill and a sign that says VALL DE CANMASDEU, walk 300m uphill and you will see a HUGE abandoned hospital just above a large old mansion. This is Can MasDeu. 41°26’44.76N 2°9’27.22E

Here is a google map of the location: https://maps.google.es/maps?q=Can+Masdeu+%4041.445799,2.157505&hl=en&sll=44.675489,6.168823&sspn=0.552726,1.234589&t=m&z=15

Camp spot

We have the lovely area by the gardens next to the almond trees to camp in. This needs to be set up on the Thursday(or possibly Friday morning). We are not able to have access to the main house unless this is for a reason previously agreed.

Food

We need to decide if we are going to be cooking communally that weekend, in which case we would need to collect some money from people. Another option would be to be self sufficient, this is because people may not all be around at meals together. Would be good to work out how to do it communally.
