There has not been a lot going on this weekend in Barcelona. The winter seems to have said "Aloha...I am comming!", this blogger was working Saturday all day long, Barça lost yesterday, and the final result of the F1 chanpionship does not look very promising (to me, of course). Well, a good film by David Kronenberg saved the night yesterday, and today is a very nice day. However, I think I will put some more pics from last weekend in Zaragoza instead.
The parties of Zaragoza (Pilares) was a good choice for various reasons. It was my first time there and I reccomend everybody to go if you never have been in Zaragoza the 12th of October.
After arriving to the city we could see the flower offering that people from the city, dressed in traditional clothes, make to the virgin of El Pilar. The story says that the virgin appeared in front of the apostle Santiago (do not ask me how), and ask him to build a church in the marble pilar where he was standing. That is why the basilic and the virgin in Zaragoza are called "El Pilar".
During all day, everybody leaves their bunch of flowers in front of the virgin. And the result after some hours is quite impressive.
Gitanillos con organillo y la cabra (This pic, I can not explain in Enlish....some "traditional" Spanish view that is difficult to see nowadays)
An then, of course...Party. That was the main reason to go to Pilares. Here the group of girls
Gracias Lorena por la invitación. Lo pasé genial en Zaragoza.
