Sign the petition

As you may or may not know. For over a week now all over Spain, people have been peacefully 'protesting' against the government demanding change and a fix to this ongoing economic crisis in this country. Yesterday in Barcelona starting around 7am, the police started kicking people out of the square and started beating people for no particular reason. The crowds never engaged in violent activity. Rumours speculate that the government ordered the police to clear the square because of the futbol finals today between Barca and Manchester. The popular Placa Catalunya is used as a celebration ground. But that is no reason to beat unarmed, peaceful protesters. Check out the link below and you can see the video for yourself and sign the petition demanding the interior minister of Catalunya to resign.

Walk like you own this town...

Monday morning means no fooling around.  Get outta my way because I gotta get to work (speaking of, Kylie Minogue's song 'get out of my way' is great to run to...especially if you have to dodge people b/c the song is about what you want to say...get outta my way). So get outta my way because I gotta get to work. Who am I kidding. This is Spain. First, where my coffee and my cigarette (mind you I don't smoke but that's what the traditional local breakfast consists of). As you can see in the photo the 'couple' on the far right are off to a different kind of work. The man behind the couple is thinking 'it's Monday but dam do I look stylish with my scarf'. The woman on the left with the brown coat is thinking 'jesus is it really Monday?'. The girl in the middle with the blue jacket says 'bring it on'. Oh look the light is green yet no one is moving. That's Spain.

Borne Sunday

This morning I woke up and went running along the beach; it was grey and miserable but soon the sun came through and turned out to be such a hot beautiful day. I met up with my friend who lives in the neighbourhood of El Borne and we sat on a terrace for hours having drinks and tapas. Can you ask for anything else on a lazy Sunday? Well yes...soon after we ordered we discovered that they had a Sunday brunch menu. Oh well, there's always next weekend.

Take a walk with me...

One of my favourite areas of Barcelona, El Borne. So many nice shops and restaurants to explore.

Bike away...

I find myself in Oberhausen today for a couple days for work and unfortunately my dear friend Anna ( is not here with me. But at least the weather is nice so far and I hope it will continue on this weekend. What a great day for a bike ride. This pic is of my friends bike in Barcelona.
