Merry Christmas!

To everyone out there, Merry Christmas and season’s greetings from Barcelona! In my mind, a “white” Christmas is the most beautiful Christmas, so it feels a bit strange to be in Barcelona with temperatures around 14°C (though it does get cold after sundown). But it’s a beautiful city (no secret there) and I have enjoyed my first day here.

The first time I heard about Barcelona was in the song “Barcelona” by Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballe, when I was a teenager. It was just a word and a question then — how is the city like? what are the people like? etc. In between, I have been here on business, but never really experienced the city. Today I am here again, but experiencing the city so differently … being here makes me feel truly fortunate. So, to celebrate, here’s the song again.

    • Thank you, Madhu! Wish you the same. Yes, it’s quite beautiful, the weather is pleasant, and the streets are full of life as ever. I’m sure summers here have their own charms. But Christmas in Barcelona has been an unforgettable experience so far.
