Flights to Barcelona
the week beginning May 17, 2010, a sand sculpture was created in Castle
Street to advertise the launch of Spanair's new direct route between
Edinburgh and Barcelona.
sculpture gradually took shape during the week, with 100 free flight
tickets to Barcelona hidden somewhere in the sand. This photo was
taken on Friday May 21, as the sculpture neared completion.
sculpture had a short life. The first hundred people to arrive at
the sculpture on Saturday May 22 to see its unveiling were invited to dig
for one minute at 10am to find tickets.
