We returned to the hotel for some cool air and research. I looked online and talked to hotel staff. Armed with knowledge, we renewed our pursuit of flowers.
- The best places are inside, e.g. Arab bath, incomparable, no wonder we couldn't see the head of the line earlier.
- Terraced stairs are good, e.g. steps in front the cathedral.
- Indoor places do not open until 10 by which time tour buses are already all over place. It's hot in the afternoon. Evenings are the best. There may still be a line, though not so long, outside the Arab bath, at 8pm.
- The crowd/quality ratio is a little high to my liking.
Each official flower arrangement/design/exhibition, numbered 0 to 106, also has a name and a title. You can check them out on the festival guide: https://tempsdeflors.girona.cat/docs/RevistaTempsdeflors2022.pdfhttps://tempsdeflors.girona.cat/docs/RevistaTempsdeflors2022.pdf
