Monday Window, Monday Washing

Barcelona, Blogging challenges, Catalonia, Spain

This time two years ago, we were in Barcelona. One of our ports of call was the first house Antoni Gaudí ever designed, Casa Vicens. Once a spacious site beyond the city limits, it’s now squashed into narrow city streets, some of its garden space sold off. But it’s definitely worth a visit, and you can have a virtual look round here.

What the official site won’t show you is the views from the windows, and one thing I enjoyed, as I always do, was the sight of the Monday washing drying on the balconies of nearby flats.

  1. I have dozens of similar pics from our hotel rooms in Lisbon….. and ditto from our travels in France’s countryside, narrow alleys in charming villages in both France and Italy – and even a collection of frozen washing in the garden of a quaint B&B in Switzerland. We have ballooning huge bloomers and all colours of the palette BLUE on dozens of jeans fluttering in the breeze of foreign countries – always charming.

  2. Look what Andrew’s started now! It’s a bit like the conversations we used to have over the fence while pegging out. 🙂 🙂 Love the shots and thanks very much for the Gaudi link, Margaret.

      1. I don’t feel I have the time for that luxury. Still have so much of Portugal to see before I even think abroad, and that was the plan for this year pre-Covid. 🤔💕


      1. Yes – thank goodness. Just read a review of Don de Lillo’s new book about silence…what if the pandemic was just a starter, and all screens went silent… No, let’s not even think about it!


  3. I love photos of washing on the line! ❤ A somehow poectic view of the beauty of commonness!
