Sant Jordi

Tomorrow is Saint George's Day, or rather Sant Jordi as it's known here in Catalonia. It's special as Saint George is our patron saint and also because we celebrate it a little in the way St.Valentine's is celebrated in other countries.

The tradition (though not one that dates back a really long way) is that the girl gives the boy a book, the boy gives the girl a rose, and tomorrow you'll find book and flower stalls on literally every street corner in the city.

It's quite spectacular…
