Aren't these cool? I saw them the other day, and they are the homes and hunting lairs of spiders......I have to do some homework on what types of spiders they are, but presumably they notice something bumbling across the bits of web outside and leap out and grab them, dragging them back into their lair....
We had the most spectacular weather today, it has been hot and hazy, and then it got more and more grey and then black out...then it let loose....thunder, pounding rain, lightning....the works. It was incredibly windy as well. Then it was over, and it is a beautiful clear sunny day...still very wind and hot, a bit like living in a blow drier....feeling a little parched.
This is the center of a round-about in the industrial part of town. Doesn't look like much, but all of those plants in it, the low ones, are lavender. You would not believe how good the smell is. Chuck was all excited as well, and rather difficult to walk with the rain must have brought life to a thousand old smells, he wanted to sniff and pee EVERYWHERE....we had rather a slow walk.
More political graffiti....Franco is dead....and the Catalan flag.
It has been a quiet day overall, work and chat and I just had a long telephone meeting with the friends we are creating the camp with for the summer....it is looking very good, we have hired the main counsellor and we are taking it from there....I am getting excited about it all. The girls are as well.
Now I have still more work again....only two classes tonight tomorrow we may go into BCN, I am not sure how many of us at this point. My god-mother made lunch for us all which was absolutely lovely, and she has brought us some delicious bread from up in Northern Europe.
Gotta run, literally
