maaaan, even cops are cool in this city

all of a sudden this evening Barcelona felt like home, riot police, protest - no idea what it was all about, but it was cool and very noisy. By pure chance we got stuck between the cops and the protesters. I took some pictures of riot cops, I was in their faces, and no one seemed to care .... at one point one of the plain clothes cops told me that it was fine to take pictures of cops if they had their ski masks on, but no faces. When I asked one of the cops to take pictures of his face, he said please don't, and then smiled and thanked me when I didn't do it. that was pretty cool. I love this city.
