LA VIEJITA | THE OLD LADY

La Viejita

Passeig del Born, surveilled by one of its tenants early on Catalonia Day (La Diada de Catalunya) on September 11th, 2016. The Catalan flag is proudly displayed on her balcony as she stands unperturbed, and in her nightgown, watching the action play out down below. La Diada is the most festive day of the year in the region, and in particular in Barcelona. You wouldn’t know it by the look on her face, but there were Catalans, all abuzz, already packing Passeig del Born, which is bookended by the Born Cultural Centre and the Santa Maria del Mar, singing as they waved their flags.
