Barcelona, a photo a day

Estacion de Francia



Of all train stations in town, this is by far the prettiest.

You might have seen it in the news, but if you haven’t: there have been violent clashes between 700 or so ‘anti system people’, as they call them on TV, and several hundreds riot police yesterday afternoon, less than 100 meters from where we live. Burned car, burned and upturned bins,tear gas, 59 people arrested, 58 injured. A lot of violence.

  3. «Louis» is quite concerned about the strikes across Europe. The U.S. government under its current leadership is taking the country down the same road that led to what is happening in Greece and the rest of Europe now. The West is in for some difficult years. «Louis» hopes that you are able to stay out of harm's way during the strikes. He knows from his time in France how ugly these strikes can become.

  10. Wonderful. I envy your amazing dead-end station. In Stuttgart we have a terminus station too. Have you heard about the project “S21”? Our station will be an underground station in few years. The people are against this rebuilding. Enjoy your beautiful station.
