Travel theme: Purple

These bizarre ladies have appeared on this blog before – here and here.  Mention purple and I immediately think of either Prince or this mad pair.  I have no idea what they were doing, but this strange street theatre on Las Ramblas, Barcelona seemed to involve some highly emotional fly swatting:

    I always think of Prince too when I see or hear “purple”… is he called Symbol now or The Artist Formerly Known As Prince? … can’t believe that he is 54 now :o)

      I lose track of what he calls himself – he can’t be 54 ‘cos I am still 16 🙂

        that’s exactly what it is… it was yesterday as Purple rain came out :o)…ok, maybe last week :o)

    Purple is my favorite color. Maybe those girls were being bizarre just for the fun of it. Good for them.

      They were having a whale of a time – invisible on the image, they were up a step ladder and attired in the same dress as cojoined twins. Wonderfully weird.

      Thanks Graham – once I saw the theme I could think of nothing else.
