pforzheim in the south of germany has about as many inhabitants as girona, a river flows through both cities and the layout is almost the same. girona has one significant difference – it looks pretty and has much more charme. but basically the two towns are the same. even the landscape and the periphery resemble each other.
since i am on my trip i always compare the new sights, sounds and people to things i already know. it is quite fun to find similarities to things you are already accustomed to in an environment that is totally new to you.
girona is a wonderful city. i am lucky i was there when it wasn’t overrun with tourists looking for the places where game of thrones was filmed and eating overpriced meals in the old part of the town.
what i really like to do is to sit down and just watch the people passing by and take the same picture over and over again, just with a different protagonist that presents itself to me and my camera. it is something i started in berlin and i really want to continue. it is part of my „kleine arbeiten“ project. the pictures look very good when hung in a row as the horizon and background repeat.
oh and i had a catalan sausage for lunch at mononcle . so delicious!
