Barcelona, a photo a day

Live long and prosper!


In the south of Europe, Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal amongst other places, people live long. To live to be 100 years old is quite normal in these countries. The secret, according to some scientists, lies in their diets. Chillies, garlic, olive oil and red wine are supposed to ensure a long and healthy life. If you don’t overdo it, obviously.
Plenty of it around here, in the Boqueria market. And in my cupboards. So let’s talk about it again in 50 years!
Prosperity? Easy: start your own garlic, chillies, olive oil and red wine business!
