Sant Joan celebrations. People gather as bon fire of wood, old furniture etc is in full action. You can feel the intensity of the heat meters away. Felt a bit like a civil war going down. But being in Catalunya I wouldn't be surprised. Anything is posible. Firecrackers going off every few seconds...all night long. It is regarded as one of the top 3 holidays here, after Christmas and New Years. In fact taxi fares include a supplement of 3.50EUR after 20:00 and 5EUR after midnight. An expensive night. We spent our night on a lovely terrace down the street but most locals and tourists were at the beach. A lovely night, complete with all the key ingredients of life: food, booze and good company. What more do you need?!
