Sunday Streets

Posted by on Jul 31, 2016 in Photos | 6 Comments

Once there is hot summer and Sunday, the streets of a city have a special feel. Sunday streets are empty, hot and slow. As a tourist, you try to avoid the crowd and you walk through small streets. This often lead to discovering unexpected things.

The table

Like I did. This small table with a futuristic plant placed next to the door. Not an entrance to museum or shop. Simple a door to somebody’s house. It surprised me. Why? Very simple, it didn’t fit into the greyish and bit dusty small road. It felt like something from a museum. Clean and gentle.

Small nice thing

Occasional encounter

Once a while you may unexpectedly exit a small road and enter the busy street. Meeting crowd and cars. Or you may encounter locals hiding from the sun under the trees, playing a game or talking and watching birds. It is Summer and Sunday streets are slow…

    I really like the sound of words “the streets are slow”. That is the feeling of late summer afternoon.

    What are the black things on the table? It looks like some photos or ad-print.

    I have really been liking your recent residential tourist entries as of late… not only for the simple images, but also your feeling and story behind them. Are you still staying at this temporary home, or are you back to your home?

      Still in Barcelona. Still in this old house living as local. Bloody hot here. Every day we get up to 33-35C

        Yikes! Wake up to that temperature?! Sucks to be you.

        My niece who went to Italy last Summer mentioned that, that air conditioning doesn’t seem to be an European thing… I honest to goodness don’t know if I could tolerate it… I am an unabashed wimp when it comes to heat, and anything over 21C I start complaining like the whiny li’l bitch I become when it’s hot.

        Stay cool!

          We have about 22-26 during night. So it is doable. You are right air-conditioning we do not have. I must say I like to cool down from time to time in cafe, but I am glad I do not have to sleep under it.
