On my drum–rum pa pum pum


Cat brothers in Parc Can de Buxeres

Barcelona prepares for Christmas beginning on November 1 when municipal workers hang decorative street lights on most major pedestrian or shopping streets. On about November 22 or so, the city actually turned the lights on and all is festive and bright.

Meanwhile the Catalan traditions that have nothing to do with Christmas continue. We heard the rumble approaching and so did the cats who live on the balcony across the street. They were desperate to get inside, and finally, their human caught on and let them in.  Here’s what we all experienced: roving drum corps walking through our neighborhood on a Saturday afternoon as seen in this video: http://vimeo.com/80253750
