DRIVEN to distraction by noise, dirt, traffic jams and general inconvenience, the people of Barcelona have wondered more than once in recent years if the price of being host to this years Summer Olympics was perhaps too high. But as the dust from myriad construction sites finally begins to settle just four months before the opening of the Games on July 25, a new city is coming into view and, well, perhaps it was worthwhile after all.

In fact, in less time than it takes to open a bottle of cava, the local version of champagne, they would spell out how Barcelona was superior to Madrid -- a strong identity born of a history dating back 2,000 years, a rich tradition of architectural and artistic innovation, a people that liked to have fun but also knew how to work hard.

AS the helicopter whined to life and we lifted up and away on a cloudless morning last month, the low winter sun threw long, sharp shadows across Sydneys terrain.

Aborigines know it as the place between sea and mountains, the place that divided the coastal people from the forest people. After the English arrived in 1788, it became the pathway to the Blue Mountains and the vast, harsh land beyond. A settler named it Homebush; the country was the bush and this was his home. Over time it became the site of a salt mine, a slaughterhouse, a prison, an ammunition depot and the municipal dump..
