rooftop party



Without going into detail, I cannot state how bizarre it has been to go from a flat in NYC that had a roof with a tremendous view--really, like a once-in-a-lifetime, you'll-never-stumble-ont0-anything-like-this-ever-again view, to my current BCN flat. By pure look, we can look down calle Mallorca from our top-floor terracitas, or go up to the roof for a better view of the surrounding hills, Sagrada Familia, Torre Agbar, and--if you lean dangerously over the edge-- the sea.
The Torre Agbar is slowly winning me over (more on that building later), but the real luxury here is being able to marvel at the soaring towers of the Sagrada Familia whenever I damn well please. I mean, holy shit. Last night the sky was ripe.
I'm very happy that my musician roommates have announced a party up there on Saturday later eafternoon/early evening, round 7-8. It's in honor of Tomas's girlfriend's b-day. We'll hang out up here and make a lot of noise. If you're in the area, drop by! (We'll miss you, Ian!)

Terraza - viene de terr-or. Two obvious dangers: primo, the possibility of drunken heads weighing too much at the moment of leaning over to contemplate the beach; segundo, unprotected hence sharp concrete walls and corners making up for a possibility of open wounds again in drunken state of total imbalance. Con mucho cuidadito, digo yo!

i can't claim to watch out for everyone at the party but i will be sure not to fall off the roof myself. hopefully no one will be too creative with walls and barriers...

i think the picture is better this way. everybody else posts the same boring right-side-up pic of the Sagrada. Nice work, Ivan. And are you actually comparing your current view to that of the Brooklyn view? Blasphemy!!!

no no... it can't compare w/Penthouse B. But it's a damn good step down to take. And keep in mind that my actual view is right-side up, unlike the photograph.
