Vic

Day trip! For New Year's Eve we headed north west and on the way stopped off in the town of Vic.
Vic is a beautifully preserved town and we lucked out by arriving on market day. There was mostly food and clothing stores, but also the odd book stall and we picked up some re-prints of some classic Catalan kids books. I also love this book cover featuring a bull.
Mr Potato!
Mushrooms and snails.
Beans. Every variety under the sun it seems!
Loved this man and his mushroom stall.
Breads and pastries to die for! Front; cheese cakes, and in the back wonderful crispy flaky pastry with custard filling. Delish!
Tradition: an olive tree with notes and well wishes pinned to it for a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012.
Gorgeous building facades.
Tiles from a children's toy shop facade.
