The bad weather of May feels like a distant memory now. It may return if predictions are correct but at least for this weekend it was sunny and hot, the sky was blue and the party on Carrer Joan Prim was a success. At least it seemed so to me but who knows what the takings were for all the stall holders? Today the street was fairly quiet and calm – for me, walking Bonnie down to the town centre, that was a pleasure, but of course for those who were waiting patiently for customers to arrive with open purses, it was perhaps a different story. Perhaps it is because there are so many festivals here. There’s something on almost every weekend so you could become blase and forget to support them
I love Sundays and as it was warm and peaceful we decided to have lunch at the Ecogra and relax at one of the pretty tables set out with lavender pots and tablecloths. We went back to the Falafel stall as it was so good yesterday
Some little boys were taking advantage of the traffic free zone and playing football. A few families were having drinks of beer or coffee. But mainly the people had disappeared – Sunday is family day here in Catalunya and I suppose they were all having big lunches somewhere else.
Music was coming from the loudspeakers that lined the street and today it was smoochy, lazy, jazzy warm Sunday afternoon music. Again I longed for a tango community to come and spent a few hours dancing in the gentle breeze. Maybe next year? We also thought hammocks might be a good idea, to have a migdiada dangling in the middle of the street.
