A shop for people who like cooking in their underwear, I suppose… Not a very good idea, no no no.

That’s all, folks!

Unable to upload photos, WordPress won’t let me… Anyway, this time it is final, this is the end of this blog. 18 months that i left BCN, 6 months in Amsterdam,  a bit in Morocco, 1 month in Macedonia, almost a year in France, soon leaving again, this time to the UK… It is time to call it a day, a very final day, as I don’t have the time, nor the energy,  to carry on. Hope you all enjoyed my 1928 post and even more photos!!!

Promised, this is really my last bike photo! I just couldn’t resist, I just love this photo!

The post title refers to an old Yves Montand song…

A last one…

Back from too short holidays in the french countryside, sigh.
So, what about a last (kind of) bicycle, for the fun of it, before passing onto something else?

Barcelona Museum or Weird Things

This is bicycle, believe it or not. An expensive one, about 4000 USD, 3500 euros.

Ready for tomorrow?


Sorry about this…

Imagen%25201271

Sorry about the bad quality of this photo, it was taken on the fly with a very basic mobile phone a few years ago, on the Plaza d’ Espana.
But then, the bad quality might be a good thing, at least for some …
This photo is not possible anymore. Until 2 years ago, public nudity was legal in Barcelona.

Another bike, getting ready for the CDP theme day!


The bike-house

Saw him all the time, for several years, a seemingly homeless guy with his house on his bike.Good luck to you, dude.


The bike tours

SONY DSC

Quite a lot of tours of any kind in Barcelona, even bike tours. No need to BYO!

More bikes in their natural environment soon to come, getting ready for the great worldwide City Daily Photos one and unique Theme Day, on August 1st! Don’t you miss it!!!!!

A man with many names…

SONY DSC

Cristóbal Colón, standing proudly on his column at the bottom of the Ramblas. You might know him as Christopher Colombus, Columbus’ name in English is actually an anglicized version of the Columbus birth name. According to most accounts, Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy, as Cristoforo Colombo, which is obviously much more similar to the English version than is the Spanish one.

In most of the major European languages, Columbus’ name is similar to the Italian one: It’s Christophe Colomb in French, Kristoffer Kolumbus in Swedish, Christoph Kolumbus in German and Christoffel Columbus in Dutch.

Strangely enough, he is pointing not towards America, but towards Italy. Ashamed of what became of his ‘discovery’ of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba, the massacre of the local tribes, refusing to convert, the european diseases, slavery… Maybe. Maybe not.

BTW, does anyone in America remember the italian cartographer Amerigo Vespucci? Aren’t you proud to live on an ‘italian’ continent?

And what about Leif Erikson?????

Another shot at the festival in the sky


CDP theme day: upside down

Upside down… When I read about this coming theme, a few weeks ago, I drew a blank. But fortunately, we had in BCN the festa al cel, the festival in the sky.

Early morning

DSC08616-Edit

I love going through town very early in the morning, the city is so peaceful, no tourist hordes. Here I am, at the famous Kabul backpacker, on Plaza Real, just off the Ramblas. The best time and place for a coffee!
