Open house at the Circulo Equestre today. Just a tad pompous. Grandiose staircase, inlaid floors, velvet chairs and not a whiff of horses. Instead, I smell money. They relaxed the dress code and let the riff-raff in, just this once. Yee-haw!
Thank you Francesca! Bellesgaurd is a surprise. A straight sided anomaly by Gaudi. A castle, a widow's distain, an orphanage, a bomb shelter, a hospital and finally and still, a family home. Until now, for not for you to see. Now open to the public by private appointment.
