Green Grass
24 November 2012 @ 11:35

Spain in the '60's didn't have a terribly good electricity supply, power cuts were frequent. No-one had irrigation systems on timers, that would have been useless. Water was often in short supply over the summer anyway. We visited Barcelona and were taken to the famous football ground. As a young girl totally disinterested in the game I remember little of the visit except the groundsman's enthusiasm for the pitch. He was proud of his work, and looking back on it, probably rightly so. We were told, through an interpreter, with extreme pride that this was 'the greenest grass in Spain'. And it probably was. The groundsman however seemed dismayed by the lack of response of the unimpressed British tourists - afterall we were all very used to green grass!
