Fish stall at Mercat de la Mercé, Nou Barris, Barcelona

Fish stand at La Merce market, Barcelona, Spain [enlarge]

Who said a female fishmonger had to be rude, shabby and smelly. Well, I guess they smell of fish of course but certainly these girls have a wonderful look. I realize my comments are stupid but I wanted to muse on cliches around professions. I don't know in your country but at least here I remember one: You shout like a fishmongeress, something that of course is not always true. Maybe you can share other cliches you've heard of in your city.

    I'm from the Southern USA. My mother's favorite cliche was "born in a barn" meaning you are an animal or a farmer with no manners.

    "She's so loud, she must have been born in a barn."

    "Don't leave the door open! Close it!Were you born in a barn?!"

    I visited Barcelona in August 2010 and plan to go back again soon. It's very interesting to reas your blog and see your photos. Thank you!
