la huelga general

Today is the “Huelga General” in Spain (widespread strike). Being very close to a major roadway and being in the center of the city makes us veryyyy close to the action. The strike started at midnight, and boy did it start! There was a huge group of people marching down the street right underneath our window holding banners and chanting as loud as they could. It was really interesting to see! I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. The protests and demonstrations are said to be peaceful, but there is no telling what will happen with so many people bunched up together, so I’m just trying to avoid them altogether.

Maybe I’ll catch a few photos and run away? 🙂
