Sunset from Montjuic

Montjuic is a hill in barcelona, originally not the part of the city but the growing population and expansion of Barcelona has absorbed it. Montjuic has an interesting role in the city’s history, from the time of when it had to defend itself in medieval times to the times of the Spanish civil war. Nowadays, apart from its many attractions it hosts an open air movie theatre during the summers. I snapped the photo on my way to the viewing of a movie. You can see MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya) in Plaça d’Espanya on the left corner of the photograph.

It’s not often you see people playing cricket in Europe. It got my attention as I was walking through the Parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona; the atmosphere seemed serious but at the same time very fun. I wish I knew the proper rules.



Solo Protest

There has been a fair  share of protests in Barcelona this past year. A lot of people feel that the region of Catalunya should secede and become and independent state. This man was trying to make the same point all by himself at Plaça Sant Jaume in front of the government building, Generalitat de Catalunya.

Barcelona Beach

I’m finally back from my travels. I’ve got a loooooooot of new interesting material to share, which I have yet to go through myself. I’m about to move to another city and another continent which should keep me busy in the near future. But I’ll still try my best to post a photo everyday.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised to see that traffic on Curious Lines has actually gone up since I stopped posting to go travel. As the name suggest the first picture I post in months is from a beach in Barcelona.
