On my way to Punto BCN for the Wednesday Happy Hour (“2X1 y merienda”) I was passing by the Mister Guau Center (pronounced “Wow”) for pets on Aribau. I was very surprised to see a woman with her pet pig! This is the first time I have seen a pig on a leash and it seemed to be well behaved. (Do they have obedience training for pigs?) It was the size of a large dog, but of course with shorter legs and covered with black hair.
Shock and awe
After I got home, just before midnight a violent thunderstorm came through. There was so much lightning that often there was a new stroke before the thunder from the previous stroke hit me. Not much rain, but the gusts of wind blew over a couple of plants on the terraza.
