Three years ago, Deb and I enjoyed Barcelona’s La Merce Festival for the first time. We loved it, but really didn’t have any idea what to expect. When we showed up then for the ultimate event, “The Fire Run”, we had lots of locals warning us that we were not dressed properly.
This time we were ready! Safety googles provided by Suzanne Rischman, long pants, long sleeved shirts and hats.
And this time rather than watching from the distant sidelines, we decided to commit 100%, follow the locals lead, and join the festivities.
The La Merce Festival is now over, and we need a nice long rest!
