First morning

I stepped outside at 8:45 in the morning. Outside, the streets are alive with people. The first thing I notice are the children – the streets were filled with little ones going to school. As I closed the door behind me and stepped onto the street, two little Pakistani girls walk by accompanied by their mother; the girls were singing Barça´s anthem as loud as they could. I smile as their childish “Barça! Barça!” recede into the distance. Welcome to the Raval.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  2. Oi Bruna,
    Estamos gostando bastante. Conhecíamos um pouco pelas visitar que fazíamos a amigos que vivem no bairro mas é claro que morar num lugar é bem diferente de visitá-lo.
    Gosto da diversidade encontrada no Raval. Pena que tenho que passar o dia todo no arquivo senao aproveitaria muito mais ;)
