La Diada Nacional de Catalunya, Castellers and Arrival

1.  Today is a very special day for Catalunya, the tri- centenary of 1714,  so the streets were full of people in red or yellow t- shirts as they prepared for the huge demonstration for independence in Barcelona.

2.  We went by train to the small town of Llinars de Valles to watch the Castellers, the human towers, which were breathtaking and scary as tiny tots climbed the human tower to the very top and gave a wave. There will be photos, I promise!

3.  Grandbaby N arrived here with her Mum after a very long series of planes and trains from Senegal and all is well.
