Recorded at the square known as ‘Puerta del Sol’, in the very center of Madrid. Conversation snippets from the crowd of passers-by, busy traffic and, standing out vividly, the characteristic announcements of the lottery street sellers. They shout rhythmically their mantras, with special attention on those days to the forthcoming ‘El Gordo de Navidad’ (the most popular and emblematic prize of the national lottery in Spain, celebrated traditionally on 22nd Dec every year).
