Barcelona, a photo a day

Post 844: real life


It is one of those strange times in the year when summer is more or less over, when people are leaving in droves, filling planes and ships to go back to their real lives. But still, the beaches are still so incredibly packed, the crowds are still so numerous. Sometimes we wish we’d not be living in a 3 Mio people town.
Anyway, if you’re just back from holidays, or if you’re about to going back, have a safe return to real life.

School started again today. And we had a little rain for an hour to celebrate, woey-hey! Been a while!

This is for the second avatar of My World Tuesday, renamed Our World Tuesday, after the passing of  it’s founder.

  1. I love this photo! I love seeing all the people with suitcases headed off in the same directions. But most of all, I love the capturing of the sudden rain. No umbrellas, no boots, no raincoats!

  4. A great image indeed of the exodus. So glad you got a little rain, I know how important that can be. Can't you escape to the mountains for a while?

  7. Bye bye tourists and summer. This is so funny when they all have similar bags and they just follow the motion.

  10. Love this crowd of people intent on their destinations. Here, we have children returning to school and kids off to college. The rest of us are “back to work” after the holiday today.
