The first word I learned to say is guaita. My paternal grandmother would take me for a walk in the trolley, and as we wandered around she would point at things with her finger and say: “Guaita Laia, guaita!”. She spoke a particular Catalan, she would say guaita instead of mira (look at). Guaitar means to watch carefully, analysing what is observed. Vigilant. Jo guaito 👀️

A present for a friend whose name starts with O and whose last name is Sol (sun and/or alone and/or only in Catalan).

I travelled around Brazil for 30 days during the carnival. At the beginning of the trip I found this golden piece on the floor, trashed from someone’s shiny outfit. I took it with me and shot a photograph every day till the end of the adventure.
