Barcelona, a photo a day

Cold


It’s cold. Well, what we call cold here in Barcelona anyway: 12 degrees centigrade during the day, 6 at night. As we are a seaside city, it feels much colder. And Spanish houses are just not built for winter. Central heating? Rare, at best. Often, it is actually colder in our flat than outside. And we go out to get warm… 4 blankets on the bed, 2 more available, just in case of. We do have electric heaters, but having high ceilings, it doesn’t really work. Well, waiting for the summer to come. Or for the coming weekend: should go up again to 18 centigrade. Nice.
Oh yeah: hope you all had a nice 12/12/12. Next occurrence will on January first, 2101, shortly before my 140th birthday. Might not be around.
