Blue tiles, blue skies, blue music. Porto-Lisbon-Faro-O...


I wonder how long it’ll take me to get over this sweet Portuguese melancholy printed in pattterns on their signature tiles and weaved into their sorrowful fado melodies. I wonder why Portugal brings a bit more colorful recollection than Spain when I look back on the recent trip that I had. Maybe it is because […]

Street Names


I continue to share the observations form my walks around the city. Here’s a thing that catches my attention all the time.

Almost nobody came to school today because of the strike. It has something to do with the reform in higher education. I’ve noticed that this happens quite a lot at school. I am looking forward to seeing the kids next week and asking them what is it exactly that they are protesting against. And if […]

Wandering around Coruña


Elbowing through humid masses of clouds, stubborn and resistent winds, and people reluctant to believe it (like me), the spring is coming to Coruña. So I took a walk to enjoy the occasional bursts of sunlight. Further follow only the images of what I found to be a pleasant view. I invite you to share […]
