1. L’Hora del Jazz, 2008
They say that some of the best things in life are free. L’Hora del Jazz, in Barcelona, is one of them. If you are lucky enough to be in Barcelona this September, you have one more chance to check out the free Sunday afternoon jazz next Sunday, September 28th. Take the metro to Diagonal or the train to Gracia or Lesseps and walk for five to ten minutes to Plaza Rius i Taulet. Between the hours of 12:00 and 14:00 two jazz bands (normally quite different types of acts) will play to a laid back but appreciative crowd of locals, expats and visitors. This is Barcelona at its very best!
Check it out here.
2. Autumnal Equinox… coming soon!
