I’m in Barcellona right now visiting my best friend Diana. It is always nice to be here! The weather is wonderful! I came on Saturday leaving a cold and grey Berlin and I found the sun, the sea and a nice warm wind….aaahaha I miss the mediterranean weather!
On next Saturday, 23rd April, is the celebration of Sant Jordi, patron of Catalonia, who saved the princess from the dragon. The tradition wants in this day a exchange of gift between lovers, the man gives a rose to his woman and receives a book. Furthermore Sant Jordi is also the book’s celebration.
My friends are organizing a small market where they will sell their books and roses – of course 🙂 -.
So while I’m here I thought to partecipate as well, preparing some handmade bookmarks and illustrations inspired to the legend of Sant Jordi.
I’m looking forward to seeing the festive city!
