What city do you live in? What neighborhood?

I'm living in Paris now, but I've lived for 10 years in Barcelona and I go there often, 3 times a year or sometimes more than 3 times a year.
In Barcelona I lived in many places, I lived in Sabadell, a little city, 40 minutes away from the center of barcelona, by train and then in the Raval, in the center and heart of Barcelona, one of them at least.

What are some adjectives that describe your neighborhood?

Suburban, urban, atypic, scenic, awake, alive, beautiful, peaceful, noisy, warm, suny and lovely

How long have you lived there, and what brought you there?

I've lived there for 10 years, and life brought me there, just life and growing up I guess, and also the will of changing myself; my life, my everything, all in one.

What is your favorite thing about this place? Your least favorite?

My favorite thing about this place it's everyting actually, the people who lives there, the tourists, coming and going back to their countries, always with a little bit more of curiosity touching their souls.
Barcelona it's an historical city, very special, singular.

My least favorite things about Barcelona and the Raval would be the growing prostitution in those streets I used to walk in and It's killing me inside out, but what else can I do? That's all I can do, feeling that change

Do you feel that you belong there?

Yes, I do, but I also feel that I belong to many other places, cause after all I'm just an Immigrant.

What is the most common misconception about where you live?

I can hardly say, cause, I feel that everything is just the way it should be everytime I go there.

What is a special fact about your city that you have to live there to know?

The Sagrada Familia and The paella, a delicious food

What aspect of your city do you secretly love?

I love Barcelona when the sun goes down, every body look just ready to go out and have some fun.
