It is a common belief that here in Spain we go nuts about bullfights, flamenco and spend a lot of time enjoying our siesta, nothing more far from reality. As you saw yesterday in my previous post Las Arenas...we have less bullrings (I have never been to a Plaza de Toros in my life), flamenco is being blended with pop, rock, salsa or even jazz and of course we don´t have time for siesta anymore, hummm, that I do miss. This bailaor of flamenco (flamenco dancer) was performing near the end of Las Ramblas, suddenly he jumps, I shoot and notice on my screen that his legs were not even blurred in the picture. You have to admit that good dancers sometimes flow in the air.

Well I think that's an outrage! There should be a complaint to the E.U. that siestas have gone the way of the 2hour lunch in France...non-existing. Maybe people should do more flameco so that they are so tired they HAVE to take a siesta. Or go the French way and go on strike for more siestas!

LOL. You bet, a good strike would really do. Thanks for posting, Eric.

Well I said no siesta but fiestas (parties) we have a lot! Ha,ha, yes I'm not in Spain, you caught me on that. I didn´t mean to destroy your illusions I just wanted to mention the cliches. Barcelona is great, if you come you won´t regret it!

Thanks for this comment, midnitebara. I like the expression of the woman in the back too. And thanks for adding me!

Nicely timed. Interesting to see that the dancer is captured absolutely sharp in the air. Whenever I have attempted to click a jump, I've messed it up. That's may be because I plan it and do... :-)
