The Lorca Centre
Prior to my most recent post on the tourist density of Granada (#80) there was a series of four posts, all relating to the inertia surrounding the relaunching of the the Lorca Cente, taken from one single article El emblema de La Caixa respaldará el Centro Lorca durante una década by G Cappa (Granada Hoy, 17/01/18).
Before that, I spent a lot of time and effort on a reassessment of the evidence of the last hours and days leading up to the cold-blooded murder of Granada's greatest poet Federico García Lorca. Posts #64 - 71, written between September November 2017, all deal with this matter.
I was briefly distracted from this rather obsessive attention to the facts surrounding Lorca's 'disappearance' to post one blog on Leonard Cohen's Little Viennese Walz and its relation to Lorca's Pequeño Vals Vienés (post#73, 09/12/17) and another on Catalonia (post#72, 11/11/17), to date my only post listed under 'Miscellaneous.
There are now (12/02-2018) 81 posts on this blogsite, divided into ten categories.
1. Federico García Lorca (21 posts).
2. Granada (15).
3. The Lorca Centre (12).
4=. The Lorca Prize (7).
4=. 'La bestia' (the dark side to Granada la bella).
6. Poetry mostly poems by Lorca Prize Winners with translations done by me. (6 posts.)
7=. Granada Airport (4).
7=. The AVE High Speed Train.
7=. Granada's Metro.
10. Misc (1). Catalonia.
Of the 21 FGL posts, 11 deal with Lorca's 'disappearance' on 16 August 1936, and a further four talk about the fruitless search for his remains at Víznar.
My latest post
refers to an article in Granada Hoy saying that Granada is the tourist destination in Spain that has the highest density of tourists in relation to its permanent population and size. Yet in Granada there is no sign of the sort of hostility towards tourists that we see in Barcelona, where the tourist density is slightly lower.
Could it be that Granadinos, as Andalusians, are simply more hospitable than Catalans?
A clue to the answer to this question can be seen in the picture immediately below.
