Barcelona Airport in January

black & yellow cabs
stop pick-up and go -
swift as bees in summer

Nice images.

Is it warm there right now?

Get out of the sea breeze and it's quite ok. About 16 C. Oranges on the trees. Lovely sight!
We were there for a week. Great place plus Gaudi, Picasso, etc.

Really good - that colour connection formed a really strong link between the two images.

Indeed Jeb. There's a huge car park around the corner from the main airport entrance where countless yellow & black cabs wait in regimented lines.
An official by means of hand signs and whistles, rather like a New York cop controls events and flings the cabs into bursts of action; it all unfolds like a swarm of bees leaving a hive to seek their pollen everytime a plane lands, which is about every 5minutes. Never saw anything like it!
