Inside the Walter Benjamin Memorial (Portbou, Catalonia, Spain; Artist: Dani Karavan, photo Wamito)

Six years ago, I posted a picture of Walter Benjamin’s grave[1], in Portbou, Spain.

One year ago, I stayed for a few days in El Port de la Selva, right next to Portbou, unaware that it was the location of Passages; Homage to Walter Benjamin (above).

Now I want to go back.
