11th April 2015 – Barcelona, Spain
I thought I was running away from people. From the civilised world I knew, to unknown shores. And yet, I keep bumping into known shoulders. They come from everywhere. In fours and scores.
Turns out I was not the only person visiting Barcelona today.
My friends from Prague, with whom I had a reunion just a few days ago, were also in Barcelona, on different reasons. So, we agreed to meet in the afternoon for some beach time in Barceloneta.
Barcelona has some of the best beaches in the world. I have been to this sprawling city before, and spent my days searching up Gaudi’s work, so today looked perfect for another beach day. After all, it seems like an eternity since Sri Lanka and Maldives.
And also because the weather was finally beginning to appear spring-like. The beach was filled with people who were brave enough to, well, take off their clothes. Brave, because it was still cold. But people persevered.
Well, I didn’t try that. I settled for my beers and chats with friends.
