Hello, beautiful--Angel Street (Carrer de l'Angel)

This is another message in my neighborhood, on a tiny dead-end street just off Gran de Gracia called Angel street (Carrer de l’Angel).The words translate to “Hello, beautiful/lovely”. It’s worth noting that in Spain, the term “hermosa” is not used in a familiar sense–you wouldn’t normally use this term to refer to someone you’re close to. In Spain “hermosa” would be more distant, or cold. Like the marble in a museum, or a model in a magazine. Or a princess. Or an angel.
