We have come half way around the world for our special adventure and also to spend some time with Hayden. We have had a lovely time in Croatia and a chatty drive back to Barcelona from there with him.
But today (14 August) was different.
It is the day before the feast of the Assumption – a holiday in Spain. It is also the day before the Festa Major de Gràcia starts. Hayden wanted to pop back to his old street in Gràcia to help set up for the festival. Their street participates each year with decorations along a theme. This year Carrer Progres’s (Progress Street) theme is Star Wars.
When we arrived it was obvious there was a lot more to be done before tomorrow, so Bruce, Hayden and I mucked in. Hayden will be there all night but we came home at dusk.
So I spent the day gluing sand to cardboard and covering chicken wire with papier mâché with my son. Perfect!
