What promised to be another mega-soirée last saturday turned out to be a very pleasant and civilised affair with a "mere" crowd of 68;) This was due to a record number of 12 no-shows (and only a couple of surprise shows) so it was a pity that quite a few people had missed out because I told them it was way too full.
Continuing on with the vital statistics... as usual we had a feminine majority with 40 women to 28 men, and a total of 31 were first time cosmo-guests. As well as the interesting variety of international people there does seem to be an increasing takeover by the local population, this time over half the guests being españoles/catalanes!
Everyone was in fine spirits and the evening flowed very smoothly and with surprisingly little mess, thanks largely to the efforts of my official helper Monica, who also contributed a delicious tabbouleh salad to the buffet table. I believe a fun time was had by all, and in keeping with the well-behaved tone of the evening the official ending time of 1:30 was remarkably respected!
By 1:45 all had politely departed, continuing into the Barcelona night with new found friends :)
