July. That was the last time I was in Barcelona. I was on vacation with Asia & Maya. First time for them; definitely not the first for me. I can barely remember how many times I have been in town: so many times that I can formally nominate Barcelona my third home-town, after Milan and London. I speak the language, I am familiar with the places, I simply feel at home.
Next week I am supposed to be in Barcelona, one more time. I will chair a conference and I have some personal business to manage. I truly hope that everything will be resolved peacefully, that the vote will take place smoothly and that Spain will give local population the right to choose their destiny.
