>Matadero de Madrid

>

Antiguamente esto era el matadero municipal en Madrid. Ahora se trata de un centro cultural, donde puedes encontrar cine, exposiciones, teatro, fotografía, pintura, y otras actividades culturales.

No es que yo esté muy puesto en estas cosas … pero lo ví el martes y me pareció genial !! me gustó mucho, además porque es la mejor forma de aprovechar los espacios “muertos” o inutilizados de las ciudades … para algo más pueden servir los solares que pare hacer pisos, pisos, y pisos.

En este caso, en lugar de derrumbar los viejos edificios del matadero, para que una constructora sin escrúpulos se lucre gracias a nuestras hipotecas, se ha decidido hacer algo para que los ciudadados de la zona sur (y del resto de Madrid) podamos disfrutar de la cultura (que falta nos hace en estos tiempos…)
Bueno, que me enrollo 🙂 si podéis daros una vuelta por allí, es un paseo además agradable.

>Capoeira en la Plaza de Oriente

>Un plan diferente, la Capoeira del mestre Madera.
Ritmo, música, baile, lucha, elasticidad, armonía, control del cuerpo… todas y cada una de estas facetas son imprescindibles.

En la plaza de Oriente, un viernes por la noche, y allí estuvimos disfrutando de la alegría y el buen rollo que transmitían los estudiantes del mestre en la roda.

>Olivia y sus tios

Es increible como esta pequeña personita que está delante de nosotros nos ha cambiado.
Todo lo que hemos vivido desde aquel día en que nos enteramos de la buena noticia, cuantas risas, cuantos lloros, alegrías, ilusiones … tantas noches hablando. Oli, tu y tu madre siempre nos tendréis ahí ! tus tíos siempre estarán para lo que necesites.
Parece que fue ayer cuando estabamos con nuestras fiestecillas … snif 🙂
en fins…nos hacemos mayores :)) … pero Peter Pan también fue mayor … aunque el corazón sea joven para siempre

Croatia !! light after the dark

>yes…what you are looking in the picture is a real one !!! no photoshop !!! :)) This is the Plitvice Lakes national park.

I started in Zagreb, and it was not so easy to find a suitable place to stay and economical at same time. Indeed, Zagreb is nice but expensive!!
Walking around the city center you can find all the terraces in the streets, some relax, coffee, beers, and having great time sitting in the sofa outside watching the people walking.
Train, is the best way to move in Zagreb, single ticket is 6,5 kn (0,9 eur), but there are very few inspectors.

Don’t miss the cathedral (no shorts! or t-shirts), ice-cream in Vincek, market, history museum, and just walk around.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, and it was granted UNESCO World Heritage. It is an amazing place with lakes, forest, nature, animals and … waterfalls !

Entrance is 110kn, and it is possible to walk all around the park in 1 day, using also the boats. Strongly recommend to go Veliki waterfall, which is the highest with 70m (you need to climb through stairs …)

And what about Dubrovnik. Actually is pretty touristic city…full of tourist in the summer time (but may is fine).

You will find out how many restaurants are in the old city (enter from Pile door, until Ploce), this take it out some charm … but all places are really nice to have a romantic dinner or just enjoy fried fish while you are listening live music. I suggest the Amorat restaurant to taste a rissoto with seafood!
You will find the maps with the bombs impacts in every door of the wall. Furthermore, you will see the different roofs colours, for those destroyed by the bombs during the war on the 90’s.

If you want to stay, i recommend you the Begovic pension (150kn/night)
The best places are the coves where you can swim in the Adriatic … awesome!
Take one day to walk all around Dubrovnik discovering new places

so, just enjoy, take your time, meet people

>Running …

>

I got it !!! OMG i got it !!
what do you feel when you drive you body, soul, feelings to the top, at maximum!!
I never thought i would be able to run 21 km.
It was long time since i workout last time, so actually i did not believe i was ready to do it, however i decided to woke up at 7 on sunday … and be ready to start at 10.
My first goal was, let’s do “just” 10km (as my previous race on Dec 31st), but once i reached this target, i decided to go forward until 15km … omg, my legs broken, my heart calm although … but, i did strongly believe i could go until finish … so, after some minutes really hard i got it !! score !!
My body was dead, my soul was awesome !!
Moral: you can do it, you just truly need believe on yourself … whatever it costs !!

>Skiing in the Alps

>

It was awesome !!! can you imagine how peaceful was there, how beautiful was the landscape

We arrived there on sunday in a really small village in the middle of the Alps. Just a market, ski shop, and one bar (closing at 22:30!! that is not the spanish schedule !)

First days, we thought it would be impossible ski, but finally the more high we went the more snow we found !!

At the end of the week, we spent so wonderful time and for sure we will be back there next year

Hopefuly you will have the chance to go there ! i strongly recommend you to go !!!
