My name is Joan Potau @joanpotau and I am really thrilled to be the next curator of @catalanvoices for the next week.
I was born in Barcelona and I am 42 years old. I live in one of the most crowded and noisy neighborhoods in the center of Barcelona, el Raval. A few locals still dare to live there !!!
I work for the Government of Catalonia. I have been working for the Secretariat for Foreign Affairs and now I am working for the Department of Justice. My interests are quite common: films, literature, politics and, specially, music. I play guitar in a modest cover band of Barcelona named after one of the dumbest and funny characters ever: “Baldrick”, the humble servant from the BBC sitcom “Blackadder”. If you want to check us out, visit www.baldrick.es (we look better than we play).
Despite I was born in Barcelona, my parents were from Tarragona and Sarral. Tarragona is a large city 100 km south of Barcelona, and Sarral is a beautiful village located in a region of Catalonia which I do love, Conca de Barberà.
I will try to tweet about my job, but mostly about my main hobby and, of course, my favorite places in Tarragona and surroundings. I hope you like them!!
