Casa Batlló

September 30, 2010

Let’s continue with our Gaudi Tour…

This is Casa Batlló. People living here in Bcn gotta be used to walk over all the time… I work almost in front of the building and sometimes (must confess) I don’t even pay attention.

But when you finally scape from “big city stress mood” you can realize you’re in front of a jewel of modernist architecture…

Personally I think Casa Batlló is the best building in Barcelona, express everything about this citiy: sea, colour, grandeur…

I really encourage you to visit it… you get inspirantion from every corner…

You can havea “macchiato” as well…

My strike

September 29, 2010

I read this morning in a newspaper a general Strike is an exceptional situation… and I’m so glad it is

don’t take me wrong, I agree with their reasons, actually I think their reasons are my reasons…

I’m just a new graduated, and personally I don’t see any opportunity around… only obtacles or bosses saying they had to spend three years doing practices without receiving any money back… Sorry but I can’t afford that precariousness eigther… I have bills to pay!!!

Yes!!! I’m against all the people that want to take advantage of “cheap payment” students, They just piss me off…

Anyway I think destroying public property isn’t the best way… ‘cas we’re gonna have to pay it anyway…

Personally I didn’t enjoy this strike… first I had to work, but trains were working only minimum services, which means train since 6 til 9am… and I work at 2pm… yes I couldn’t help to poker face my boss when she was telling me I had to come to work :/

Then I went to Barcelona, but finally I didn’t have to work (thank you piquets), and also didn’t have a way to go home :/ (triple murder!!!)   

Yes, today was really stressful for everyone… thanx God General strikes are exceptional, aren’t they?

I also had a Britney fantasy ;)

September 29, 2010

Hello everybody!!! I survived to a General Strike today, and my reward was watch Britney/Brittany Glee’s episode, yeeaahh!!!

I listened Glee’s versions. They are all good, and my very fave is Toxic!!! 

You all know my devotion for Britney, so I enjoyed a lot with this episode… But If I have to be a little critical, I think I would say they were trying to clean up her image A LOT!!! 

However, they said something it’s true!!! She makes you feel Stronger (than yesterday, lol), She’s been an inspiration for a whole generation: BRITNEY IS POP CULTURE!!!

makes you dream… DREAM BIG!!!

Personally I think everybody needs a Britney fantasy, just like Glee’s 😉

it’ll make you feel FREE!!!!

Like I said in previous posts Tom isn’t a very typical tourist, so I always have to push him to visit this kind of things…

This time I wanted him to do a “Gaudi Tour”… so we started in La Pedrera

 

 

What Chapa missed that tuesday night ;)

September 26, 2010

Tom’s favorite peruvian plate is Lomo Saltado…

Mine is Cebiche, of course…

When I told Tom we were going to the peruvian restaurant, he couldn’t help thinking in Lomo Saltado (all day long)…

I just wish Chapa could had come that night :/

Have a virtual cheers with my pisco sour :p
