Barcelona, a photo a day

Under siege!

The governors of the European Central Bank are meeting in Barcelona. This means that Spain has opted out of Schengen for a week (not a good time to forgetting your passport if you’re heading our way). It also means that the city is very literally under siege, as some people might be after those poor little ‘innocent’ bankers. Heavily armed riot police everywhere, streets closed, traffic jams…I saw about 20 vans from the riot police speeding to… some action, I guess. Well, as it was lunchtime, maybe they were just hungry.
As it is forbidden to take photos of policemen/women, even the group of plain clothed ones next to our house, with their balaclavas (as I was reminded very rudely by some cop), I wont show you the photos I took  (hey, I’m living here, folks! Don’t want trouble!). Let’s hope I did not commit a crime by watching what was happening in the skies over our fair city. And taking a photo of it.

Well yes, Skywatch Friday of course!
