Brexit and Fireworks in Barcelona…

Last night in Barcelona was a strange one, we spent some time with our friend Bryan who is from South America and met a whole bunch of new people from all over the world, happily living here in Spain. Last night was the Feast of Sant Joan, Catalonia’s celebration of Summer Solstice and their patron saint. The streets of the entire city were flooded with bonfires, firecrackers and fireworks for most of the day and into the early hours, with children happily dancing over fires and setting light to small explosives. There are still fireworks going off now, 11am the day after. It felt apocalyptic, especially when combined with the EU referendum results that we were so anxiously waiting, whilst we watched the fire brigade extinguish a blazing fire over the entrance of a block of flats across the road. Bizarre.
