“ATLAS” — in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Que es fuerte, Josep!
Brought to our attention yet again by Santa Robaina Rodriguez! Mr. Carrasco is a Catalonian sculptor from Barcelona.
I made it here from Barcelona in two days, a new record! I’m going to stay for a few days because they have really good three star hotel food here in the place for the homeless. I’ll get fat! And then I shall go and take Alicante by storm. Hide your women and children for […]
Left Bayonne and arrived in Avignon a couple a days ago. It is a truly beautiful city and I loved the people. However, when I talked to a social assistant there he explained that I would have to stay in a halfway home and be there at four thirty in the afternoon and stay till nine […]
Hace un rato, estaba en Barcelona por la tercera vez y encontré un joven Catalán. Charlabamos un momento, cuando yo comentaba que las Moscas d´Esquadra eran como una plaga para la gente de la calle. El me miraba como si fuera un idiota de guiri y me dice: “Pero no, tio, se […]
I´m leaving Barcelona, intent on starting a lucky streak, in search of my very own Shangrila. Somewhere in the mountains of Galicia, in proximity to the sea, I hope to find it. A haven of safety to call home for the rest of my days, surrounded by friendly, peace-loving people, who will accept me for […]
I read this on a shop window of a Vegan restaurant in Barcelona and thought I should share it with you: Spicesism: discrimination against a person on the basis of which spices he or she prefers!
Zaragosa was great, lovely friendly people and the cops left me alone. Don´t know anybody there though and want to get to Santiago de Compostela asap, so I left today and just now arrived in Burgos. I´m deliberating whether I might not do the Camino de Santiago(=pilgrimage) on foot, which would build up my strength. […]
Much as I love it here, the bloody cops will not let me make a living. Wherever I sit down to beg, they tell me: “You can´t sit here. It´s not allowed!” There are an awful lot of us here though… and I get food from the nuns. I´m not starving, but life is not […]
Lil Ralphie is in Barcelona now, thanks to another little miracle, but I don´t have the time(money) to tell you all about it. I came here to see a dear friend of mine and what do I hear? He passed away two years ago on the street, farewell dear Paul! You are sorely missed. I […]
I was forced(literally) to leave Fuengirola yesterday and am now in Granada, still alive and kicking, surprisingly. I can not give any further info. If anybody in Fuengirola reads this, please inform my friends that I am alright. There are not a lot of acquaintances left here that I know. I therefore plan to travel […]
It was evening when we arrived in Barcelona, which is a wonderful city. Gaudí helped design parts of it and it is a must, if you´re artisticaly inclined. Just the Sagrada Familia, one of the cathedrals is worth a visit. And the Parque Gaudí, a park designed by the great man himself is unusual. Don´t […]
