It was only a few weeks ago when something wet came out of the sky. Tourists told me it was rain. Vaguely I remembered I used to know that kind of weather. Back in the Netherlands… Ah, yes, rain. It hadn’t been raining in Barcelona for months. And when it did, it poured. Allegedly. I didn’t see it, I was on holiday in Tenerife then.
This rain stayed for an afternoon, and then it went back again quickly. And now there’s a problem. It’s too dry in Catalonia. Even the archbishop of Barcelona is concerned. He has asked the faithful to pray for rain (no, the hashtag #prayforrain is not trending yet).
But, as the famous Dutch football player Johan Cruijff used to say: Every disadvantage has its advantage. And in this case: the church Sant Roma de Sau, that has been submerged in 1962 in order to make the Sau Reservoir, is now completely visible.
