Today, the perhaps most well-known primate has died because of cancer in the Barcelona Zoo.
I'm talking about Snow Flake (Floquet de Neu in Catalan), the unique and rare albino primate on the face of the world. He was found many years ago (about 30) and he was brought to Barcelona where it became one of the most famous symbols of Barcelona. Everyone of us in Barcelona and Catalonia love and loved him, and today is a sad day because of his death.

What I find curious is that one of the most important symbols of Barcelona died today 24th of November as one of the most important symbols of Barcelona did 12 years ago, our beloved Freddie!

Freddie and Floquet de Neu, two important symbols of Barcelona, will have the same death annyversary. That's great.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

Why do good monkeys have to die?

Meanwhile, we still have the chimp at the white house still alive and kicking.

No, I'm being serious, FriedChicken!!

As you know, Freddie did the song 'Barcelona' and since there is a great symbol. He's very loved here because of his music and because of his gift to our city: that amazing and awesome song (and album).
