Fashion victim…?

Fashion victim?

Barcelona is very design… You can laugh at it but it's a place where every third person is a designer: a graphic designer, a web designer, a fashion designer, a industrial designer, an interior designer, a freak designer…

There are crowds of design victims and cool hunters.

And all of them create this amazing atmosphere of Barcelona that attracts creative people from all over the world.

Entrar en el corazón de la ciudad

Back street, Gothic Quarter, BarcelonaPassatge de Sert | Photo: Irene Ucha

Enfrente de IH Barcelona, hay un pasaje que te lleva al corazón de la ciudad. Dejas atrás el ruido de los coches y te adentras en un tranquilo pasillo de aire fresco, un bar, un restaurante, algún estudio… y al final esta puerta de hierro forjado.

Al atravesar su umbral llegas a una ciudad diferente, a un laberinto de callejuelas que podría ser la Barcelona de hace 30 años.

There are plenty of places, walls, gates with graffiti in BCN. Sometimes I smile when I recognize the work of the same artist in different areas of the city. This one I saw next to the Ciutadella Park and it surprised me a lot, the message is very different from others. Which is why I like it…

Swimming on the Ramblas, Barcelona

Let's pretend the football didn't happen… Here's a fish: the animal rights activists want to get rid of them, and Barcelona's Town Council says it will, but there are still kiosks selling fish, birds and reptiles at the top of the Ramblas.

They're kind of sad, but they're part of the Ramblas, always have been and personally I'd be sorry to see them go. They've always reminded me of a phrase from a novel by Julio Cortázar: "agonía en una jaula atestada de golondrinas enfurecidas".
