Fighting Windmills Tour: Barcelona
I remember I was thinking how much any taxi driver could learn, if he'd just listen like the one taking us to the Barcelona airport did. I guess you can't always trust what your customers are babbling about, but he came across as someone who had been taking that into account. He had, for example, very specific knowledge about Finland, and even about a certain language minority there. In the summer, he drove three to four Finns per day, he said.
I remember I was thinking about that magnificent Columbus monument. What an extremely pompous, offensive symbol. Or, how endless weren't the ambitions of the West, how worthy wasn't the cause? Phallic.
I remember thinking Ryan Air is a rogue company. They cunningly stole 105 € from us. I hear they are going to charge for toilet visits on the plane. Well good luck, shitheads.
