— Halloween, Barcelona
November 3, 2008 — Last week we celebrated one
of America's favorite holidays, Halloween. For those who just can't get enough
of Halloween I have something special for you, courtesy of Barcelona, Spain.
You'll be happy to know this is not a trick. It's a treat...
Spanish Eye Candy
In an earlier installment
I told you Barcelona is a glorious place, and that it is. While the city may
not celebrate an American-style Halloween, it is home to some
of the world's most creative and talented street performers.
Posing as elaborate "human statues"
these individuals will hold a motionless stance until a crowd gathers hoping
to see them twitch, or better yet, do something interesting. The audience is
rarely disappointed. Street performers are quite happy to perform
and pose for pictures — but only for a tip. Many of the best street performers
can be found along Barcelona's famous pedestrian boulevard, La Rambla, where
every day is Halloween. So sit back and enjoy the show...
I have a favorite; in fact I have two.
