The Scottish football hooligans are in town. Help us all. What a singularly ugly group of louts. I had to walk through Plaça Catalunia today dodging drunken jerks at every step...praying only that people would NOT think I was British...if there is one day only I hope to look Catalan or anything other than British. Yee gads. They were all massively hung over as well. There are apparently 13,000 hooligans in town. OMG.
There was even one old guy bragging that he was here in 1972...when they came down and trashed Camp Nou where Barça plays.
If you want to see some photos of them in action..... go here and click on the fotogaleria called 'descontrol escocès' which means scots out of control.
SO as an antidote, I thought I would post these photos of some of the things I find lovely on my way down to class in the morning...
I took the photos early in the morning, and I love the play of light over the stones. I also really like the interplay of stones, bricks and concrete....solutions over many hundreds of years.
