everytime i leave the house i run into another parade, which is fun for me, but slightly frustrating for everyone who is waiting to meet me when i am late for the hundredth time due to unavoidable dragon related delay :)
on saturday i went to see a parade called correfoc, which means 'fire run' and literally, everyone gets dressed up in their best flame retardant clothing and demon outfit and runs through the streets setting of fireworks
then on sunday we went to see the castellers, who are teams of people who build human towers, up to 8 or 9 levels high. they were amazing to see, especially the tiny child who gets to perch on top of the tower with a crash hat on. one of the towers collapsed, and this kid just went flying, it was insane. but she lived!
everything has settled back down again now, and it is possible to cross the street without being hit by a parade. university starts some time in the next few weeks - we are currently trying to figure out how to enrol, but it is such a bueracratic mess, its ridiculous. hopefully we'll have it figured out in the next 6 months...
