Catalunya Life


Here are some rarely seen photos of my first trips to Barcelona.

guell1999 (senior year of high school)

Some things to notice:

  • It is no longer possible to be alone in a picture of the dragon statue at Parc Güell.
  • I used to drink Pepsi?! That’s just wrong.
  • I loved that army jacket. It had a fantastic liner and I was always warm in winter.

Did you notice?

  • Still not too many tourists.
  • I was favoring this long black pea coat (which I wore until it was threadbare)
  • My hair was wicked long!
  • Extra credit if you knew I still have these grey slacks, and that they still fit!

For comparison I fearlessly offer these more recent images.

This is January, people! What are you all doing in Barcelona? Don’t you know it’s not tourist season yet? Now I will have to find somewhere else for my annual navel-gazing, existential self-portrait project. At one point it got really out of hand. Look how this local man jumped right into the photo!

PUT THAT MAN DOWN! You don’t know where he has been!

Really enjoying your blog – say Hi to Oscar.
