Gràcia is a neighbourhood in Northern Barcelona and I found it a pleasure to just walk around without a particular destination. The camera and me had a look at what was happening on the streets that were so blessed with sun and energy, in the middle of what can only be described as a pre-Christmas climate in the rest of Europe. I’m not sure if it’s primarily because of the sun, but oh those Catalans know how to enjoy life in and with the public.
My favorite scene of these wanderings though was my last night in the city, when the Belgian band B Road Bastards gave a beautiful performance in the midst of one of Gràcia’s Plaça de la Virreina. The longer they played, the more people gathered around them, started to sing along and danced on the stairs. Being young, oh yes! Funnily enough, the guys only visit cities that start with a B.
