Fiesta, Fiesta

This weekend is the Fiesta de la Merce: THE most important holiday weekend in all of Cataluna (Barcelona area). Unfortunately, this is also the weekend we go to Vall de Boi, but tonight I did go to the first celebrations of the weekend.

At the concert.  That's Santiago down in front.

So, tonight we went to a free concert downtown with Spanish hip-hop music and practically every 15-35 year-old Spaniard and tourist was there. The huge outdoors stadium was PACKED.

Although it is technically illegal, basically every other person I saw was smoking hash and it sort of reminded me of being at a Dave Matthews Band concert.

We danced like crazy, met some crazy cool kid named Santiago from Vera Cruz, and ran into people we knew from school.

It was a lonnnnnng and fun night.
