Politicians brought a party to my front yard!

This week there was a huge referendum in the province of Catalonia (of which Barcelona is the capitol) to make Catalonia a separate country from the rest of Spain. Locals hit the polls on Sunday to vote on the issue. To sway the young constituents to vote “yes” on the matter, the city of Sant Cugat had an “Independencia para Catalunya” concert/party — right in front of the house I‘m staying at. I had planned on getting some sleep that night being that I hadn‘t gotten a good night‘s sleep in at least a week, but the city of Sant Cugat had different plans. You know what they say: if you can’t beat em’, join em’. I rocked out with the locals for a couple of hours, then took two steps and I was home. In the end there was a 25% turnout at the polls and 94% of those who voted were pro-independence. The only thing is that the outcome has no legal standing, Catalonia just wanted to prove a point.

    Awwww! Auntie Roz, your soo sweet! I'll tell my Span fam you said hi!I'm pretty lucky to have been set up with them, they're the greatest!..The cool thing about Barcelona (and even Sant Cugat, which is a relatively small town) is that there's always something to do. Every weekend there's a free show, fair, exhibit etc. Although it's getting a little cold now so its hard to enjoy the free outdoor activities. I love you & miss you

    I'm a little disappointed that you didn't give the camera an Aaron hand shake to the Reggae. But, I'm picturing you doing it anyhow…About to likely spend another 20 bucks on Yoni's JT at Busby's. I love & miss you too Auntie Roz. Your positive comments make me smile. Thinkin' of you Dee. Margie was asking if there was an address to send you Xmas gifts. I told her not really. Maybe when you settle in with the next fam. Love – Kevin.

    Keez: Please believe I did an internal Aaron hand shake..You're Yoni's sugar daddy! When I get home I'm gonna invite you to random sports bars all the time (I'll order several VTs & a heart attack on a platter & you can pick up the tab!)..Who doesn't love (& miss!) Auntie Roz, she's the greatest!.. Awww, Margie's sooo sweet! Tell her to hold on to my xmas present until I get home, international shipping charges are outrageous. I guarantee she would pay more to send the gift then the gift cost. Miss You!

    Auntie Roz: I forgot to tell you that Auntie Ciatta said that she also enjoys your comments! I just sent you an email. Love You!
