Tonight is the last night of our stay here in Barçelona. The teams have worked very hard with the planning of the BOBCATSSS 2014 conference but of course we've have also got time to get to know each other as well as the city of Barçelona and Catalan culture. Many new memories have been created during these few days.
There's one memory though that is especially etched into our minds and that's the phrase "swedish people!". It's our friend, the driving spirit Vicent who has taken care of us and guided us through the Catalan way of living.
It must not have been easy for him guiding us everywhere. For some reason some of us always managed to go in the wrong direction or get stuck in something obviously very distracting. "Swedish people!" Vicent called for us when that happened. And it happened a lot. A LOT. Alot even. Soon it became a standard expression and we even started to use it when calling for each other. "Swedish people!".
Here's a really nice picture of our personal guide (in the foreground) guiding us through the National library of Catalonia. Oh! Poor guy having to deal with us, the "swedish people"
