Ghandi bombing....peace!

With his special brand of explosive under his arm and his “Bombing Peace” sweatshirt, this casual, but always non-threatening Ghandi can be found on a side street just off the Portal de l’angel, going toward the Rambla. It was a nice surprise to find a discreet little piece like this nestled between the the epicentres of tourism (the Rambla) and shopping (Portal) acting as a quick, refreshing artistic oasis in the desert of relentless consumerism that is the Barcelona city centre. If only just a few of us can unglue ourselves from the smartphone screen long enough to appreciate this peaceful ticking time bomb, his efforts won’t be in vain. I hope he makes it to Christmas shopping season, when he’ll be needed most.
