Catalan Climbers

Found behind a cathedral in Barcelona, Spain.

 

The men at the bottom are like flying buttresses, holding up a growing tower of people, culminating with two young girls in a crash helmets preparing to stand at the top.

 

Here’s a video of the build, just one of the many colorful celebrations of Catalan culture spilling into the streets and squares.

 

(I am looking forward to pouring through the photo backlog and sharing some of the trip highlights)
