Hi friends. Surfing on youtube I´ve seen two beautiful videos of my two towns. The first about El Masnou, where I lived until 27. It´s a village placed at 17 kms from Barcelona. In it appears some streets where I grew up playing football in my childhood. Great pictures in it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0J-4C4lcIY

The second of Malgrat de Mar, where i I live during the last 8 years. (60 kms from Barcelona, and 43 from El Masnou)
( The first street is Calle del Mar, very near of I live now)

I think would be great if you (instructors and students) find similar videos of places where you live and want to share with us.
Come on! wink.gif

Here is Malgrat

I have a lot of friends live down that way Matt!
I used to know every Pub in the Town Center, although last time I was there (about 6 weeks back) I noticed a lot weren't there anymore!

Photo of the nearest town - Algodonales - to where my house is, the church in the main square and a paraglider over Lake Zahara near me that gives an idea of the countryside round here.

A vid of Algodonales here.

Algodonales is a world centre for paragliding - vid here.

Every year however we celebrate the anniversary of when Algodoanles held off Napolean's army for 3 days to buy time for the Spanish and English armies to arrive. (We get dressed up in period clothes and the battles are re-inacted.) Next year is the 200th anniversary. Vid here

Thanks SJ - the pictures and videos don't actually do it justice. Quite a few of our friends describe it as one of the prettiest places in Spain.

I'll try and take some good photos over the next few days and post them.
