Yesterday, waiting in front of the Opera, I met a man named Clara.
He was carrying my mannequin under his arm.
As I walked to Yoga with my new friend in her Ikea bag I debated what to name her.
Then out of nowhere I passed a space I never noticed before. An international meeting place. A huge café so warm and inviting. They had flyers by the front door of the monthly activities. Next Tuesday, Catalan lessons being taught in French. How perfect!
Still, I need to name her, Seal Lupus? Marguerite?
Roger, said they didn´t suit her. Then this song came on the tv and voila!
It´s about a boy who falls in love with a girl. It´s a forbidden love though because he´s the most Catalan a Catalan could be, and well, she´s not at all. She´s a ¨Jenifer¨.
Like Romeo and Juliet they say. He´d give up his car for her. Watch the video and get a nice little tour of Barcelona as they sing about all the important traditions and their love.
