And… Mercat del Born opens

After years of construction and millions of euros spent on said construction, the Mercat del Born has finally opened. As a neighbor, I was invited to see the dress rehearsal of the “auca” which was basically a short, one hour play they set in the ruins about life leading up to the Siege of Barcelona. It reconfirmed that the US (outside of NYC) doesn’t give a damn about performing arts in general as this was a small performance with a limited run that was still produced in an exceedingly professional manner.

The market is wonderful inside and out with the meticulous reconstruction efforts showing through. I even love the new Moritz bar, at least currently. Naturally, my only misgivings were about what happened around the market, which were outlined in this article. The other neighbors are a mixed bag on this subject and currently, the balconies of my neighborhood look like a collection of awesome art project, independence, and nosebleed rags

  1. Thanks for the more detailed description of what is going on. You seem to be living in an exciting place right now, too bad it costs so much. I am glad the construction has ended, I am sure that makes things nice for both of you.
