Retro light, antique building – Carrer Hospital

There’s nothing like Christmas lights to put you in a festive mood, right? Well, I’ve been a little disappointed about this year’s lights in Barcelona. They are pretty much the same as last year, and that’s just boring. Obviously these are tough times (financially, politically) so I guess we’ll just have to grin and bear it! Trying to make the best of things (as I usually try to do) I realised that there are actually quite a few lights that I DO like, and these are the retro lights, dotted around town.
