Little did I realise staying in Barceloneta puts me in the frontline of attack from giant man-eating cigarette butts, flying drinks cans and banana surfboards.
But I should not fear. According to the true chronicles of Herois de Carn i Ossis (Heroes in the flesh), we have a stupendous cast of superheroes protecting the good people of Barcelona. There is, ranked in ascending order of superhero powers, and descending order of creative naming:
- super noi net – Super Clean Boy
- el salvador de la platja – The Saviour of the Beach
- la protectora de la sorra – The Protectress of the Sand
- noia meravella – Wonder Girl
I’m not sure why they ran out of beach related titles by number four. Banana Surf board girl would be so much better.
In addition to this reassuring news, the council would also like to inform you that jumping your motorcycle over cars is strictly prohibited.
Seriously guys, nobody is impressed by those stunts anymore.
