Today is Earth day. In Barcelona, we celebrate it with a big fair this weekend at the Arc de Triomf, and…with a lot of very international food! Celebration + Barcelona = food, what else. And also a lot of music, events, alternative things to buy. Go there, it’s my favourite event of the year!
They even had some antipodean stuff at the Earth Day festival! Crikey!
Hi to all our friends down under!
You just have to try this on, Cinderella!
Big Earth Day festival here last weekend, like every year. Lots of fun, of strange people, exotic food, fun, music… Here are some guys from one of the bands playing. And no, they didn’t play the Crocodile rock, but rather something much more jazzy.
We might take a small break… We are moving this coming weekend, but the telecom technician will transfer our line tomorrow. So, unless we find access to some free WiFi, or if we can use a smartphone as a WiFi hub, we’ll see you all next week.
A celebration of wind energy was the main theme of this year’s Earth Festival, 2 weeks ago. So the organizers mounted a big…no idea what this is called… oh yeah: a pinwheel (thanks guys!) underneath the Arc de Triomf. And it was turning and humming in the wind… Here is a closer look, from behind.
This is for Skywatch Friday. Please click here to see other Skywatcher’s photos.
And yes, I missed the supermoon, and I’m extremely unhappy about it. Next time.
During the recent Earth Day festival, these people were singing and dancing in Ciutadella park. I suppose they are dressed as Mayans. And I think they had central American accents. Does anyone know more about them?
Came across this open air ecological bakery, during last week’s earth day celebrations.
This is for our monthly theme day.
Tomorrow, we will post something about dragons and bakeries.
And here is the bread
A few impressions from this year’s Earth Day Festival in Barcelona.
The Earth Fair is, among many other things, an excellent place for discovering and tasting different food, or different ways of cooking. A few examples… Have a muffin whilst watching the photos, and some of Louis la Vache’s coffee (see sidebar)…
A large group of people were doing Tai Chi in the park, last saturday.
A personal note. I haven’t been feeling well during the last few months. Will spend some time in hospital from tomorrow, having some heart surgery done. Nothing major, but nevertheless… So, I’ll be posting on automatic for a while. See you soon!
During the Earth Day Festival, we spotted this: hemp flavored ‘special beer’. Not everybody’s taste, I suppose! Would you drink it?
As for us, we are wine drinkers.
Dog races are very popular in Spain. But… What to do with the dogs, mainly greyhounds, once they’re too old or too slow? They are usually put to sleep.
Several groups here try to save them, to buy them, and they are then given for adoption.
