Late October saw us enjoying another great time during Girona’s city wide festival, St. Narcis. The fun fair had a good run of fine weather and it’s a nice economic boost to the local economy. I must admit to missing out on some of the highlights like the human castles and the crazy, pyrotechnic ‘corre foc’, but there’s always next year. I’ve also added some more restaurant reviews on my foodie page. The countdown to Christmas has begun-the lights in many streets have gone up, but I don’t know when they’re supposed to be switched on? Oh, in case you’re wondering about the post title, in the past, St Narcis was always the time of the year associated with kids getting a new winter coat-I guess global warming has changed that custom!
It’s generally agreed amongst friends and locals as having been a dismal summer as far as the weather is concerned. I’ve been away quite a bit in July and the first part of August, but we managed a week in Carcassonne, France mid July. It’s been on our places to visit for a while as it’s only about a 2 hr. drive from Girona. We were there during their month long festival which I had never heard about. Shame really as they had quite a line up of artists and groups like Elton John, Lana del Ray and The Jacksons, with some free concerts too. I’ll be checking out their festival in 2015 for sure. To cap off our stay we even saw the Tour de France stage that came through here.
Sorry for the big time gap from my last post but time has flown by and we have been mega busy with our latest business venture, more of which I will write about in a separate post. Bureaucratic delays has given me enough material that I may post on the Living in Girona pages instead.
