The colour of a dog running away sounds like an interesting read. I vote Dog. Do I get a vote?

John said...

Where oh where is the Damon Runyan ????
You bunch have been ducking him for far too long in my opinion !

Nick Browne said...

Kali, Chris is a sucker for anything set in Barcelona for some reason, and there are some funky places such as Plaça George Orwell there once you get off Las Ramblas. Vote away.

John, "Runyon on Broadway" is a monument. Perhaps I subconsciously assume that everyone has read it.

KaliAmanda said...

I've had an ongoing and evolving fantasy that my soul belongs in Barcelona since childhood. It's primal. I am properly intrigued and think I will read this one myself!

chris said...

i want to move to barcelona

I think I was a berenger in a former life, or more likely, his dog

now there;s a book title;
Berengeur's Dog

or berengar's

Nick Browne said...

What is a Berengeur?

chris said...

Berenguer is the Spanish and Catalan form of the name. Berenguier/Berengier is the Occitan.

So I try a little Freddie:

Let the songs begin
-Déjalo nacer
Let the music play
Make the voices sing
-Nace un gran amor
Start the celebration
-Ven a mí
And cry
Come alive
And shake the foundations from the skies
Ah,Ah,Shaking all our lives

Barcelona - Such a beautiful horizon
Barcelona - Like a jewel in the sun
Por ti seré gaviota de tu bella mar
Barcelona - Suenan las campanas
Barcelona - Abre tus puertas al mundo
If God is willing
-If God is willing
If God is willing
Friends until the end
Viva - Barcelona
