Easter nears. Brown eggs pretty much the standard, but I need the white ones to make those colors pop. Surprise, white eggs at the poultry shop the other day. And I find them at the big covered markets around town too. In every size from petite to ostrich. For the coloring kits, Taste of America, Balmes 322.
Well an elegant, organized dog pile that is! The Castellers. Spring time in the plaza. A helping hand, strong backs, lots of balance and a fearless little kid.
I've never seen someone actually wearing this traditional catalan hat! It's like finding a leprechaun or a real santa. A resident of Siurana in the Priorat. The drive up there is stunning rocky sheer cliffs. And overhangs that bring in the rock climbers eating their tailgate lunches in the parking lot.
I love that you can be on your way somewhere and suddenly be distracted by the canvases everywhere. An open space, vibrant colors, free mind, free show. Our city, a pilgrimage for Europe's best grafitti artists and a good reason to wander into your appointment a few minutes late.
