Ha! Am laughing to myself here, had a look through the photos that were posted. They're really cool! So many happy people! The one thing I notice is that I'm not in any of them :? ...now, before I went to Barcelona I couldn't quite believe I was going, it felt like a dream being there, and when I came home it felt especially dream like so I'm beginning to wonder......was I REALLY there....or did I just dream it all!! :lol: :lol:

burningviolin,

you are in at least one of my photographs! Be assured, though - not having any pictures taken of you is definitely preferrable to what seems to have happened to me: Everyone just seems to have taken their cameras out, taking pictures of me, on the first evening when I had had hardly any sleep at all and was VERY drunk, it seems. Not exactly flattering, either...

A great summer of wonderful Leonard Cohen concerts is coming to an end and I would like to thank.
Jarkko and team – for this forum, for all the information here to find, and for the chance to buy excellent concert tickets via the pre-sale opportunities opened for forum members. And also for the leonardcohenfiles.
Maarten – who helped me patiently with my first forum steps and for setting Regina and me on the lunch list for Barcelona, and for the name tags.
Jorcx and the whole Barcelona team – for all they organized for us to make Barcelona a real two-day-long birthday party. The Sala Vivaldi events were a true highlight, the small but sensitive ideas really appreciated. Though normally not much in for cover versions I did like the Catalan Cohen songs of Jorcx a lot, at the moment I am researching for a disc of Jorcx with Cohen Songs in Catalan which I could buy here in Germany.
All forum members – for sharing their feelings to Leonard Cohen and for some interesting backgrounds.
You all made this Leonard Cohen Tour something very special to me. I will never forget.
All the best for Leonard Cohen, all best wishes for all Cohenites! If this would never end…

I would like to join harald in his thanks.
I had 14 months of wonderful concerts and almost all the time one more to look forward to.
Now I don't know should I cry or should I smile.
I feel very privileged to have been able to go to 5 concerts.
Thank you Leonard Cohen and his band to make this happen.
Thank you Jarkko for this wonderful forum.
Thank you to the whole team who organized the Barcelona meeting.

What's the chance in all of Barcelona that we would run into other forum members in Parc Guell?
