I bike therefore I am

Parked in Plaça Sant Jaume

We liked this bike, and the basket on it, which we found tied up to a lamp-post in the Plaça Sant Jaume this morning. It seemed to make a statement of some sort: not only was the owner going to choose to ride a bike in Barcelona (not that dangerous if you keep your wits about you) but their bike was going to look like this…Peace and love!

The Plaça Sant Jaume is about the one place in Barcelona you might risk leaving a bike tied to a lamp-post: with the Generalitat and the Ayuntamiento right there in the square there's always a policeman or ten on guard.
