Bubble stuff! I loved blowing bubbles when I was a kid. But never did my creations even approach the proportions of this artist outside our hotel’s front door in Barcelona’s Barri Gòtic neighborhood. That little boy on the right was fascinated, too, watching patiently as the man in the plaid pants created huge bubbles, one after another. Of course, a little boy’s patience has its limits and it wasn’t long before he raced after the soapsuds, popping them all. Or, to be generous, embracing them.
