I came across this video the other day and felt the need to share it...it is truly beautiful, and also mesmerizing. There is a person holding a camera while at the front of a street car (I'm assuming), and they film the city life of Barcelona 1908. There is equally beautiful piano music dubbed over the video. I find three things interesting about this video: (1) The high proportion of bicycles (these style bikes...the ones we ride today...were in their infancy in 1908...they must have been a real novelty at the time). (2) Everyone keeps turning to look at the camera (Was the camera-person riding on the front of the streetcar? Were they hanging out a window? Were they calling out to people?). (3) And this is the most important one...everyone looks so happy. I encourage you to watch it, it will make your day.
Also want to let you know, we are an urban-gardening, bike-riding , good-food-lovin' family; and I enjoy your blog very much.
