This is the bridge at Lugo, or Lucus Augusti. It dates back to the lower Roman empire, and has endured some reconstructions. It is, still today, the only bridge in service in this city (about which I’ll write soon enough). Think about it. The stones of this bridge are more than two thousand years old. […]

Friends – Led Zeppelin.mp3


Hay personas que parece que hayas nacido conociendolas. Fijate, hoy me ha pasado algo increíble. Una voz, unas letras en la pantalla, que hasta ahora no eran más que eso, han tomado cuerpo. De repente, he podido dar las gracias en persona por muchas cosas. Por hacerme descubrir Sex & the City, enviarme postales, enviarme […]

Late at night revelations


Today, I realized that, if you want to truly appreciate “The Pink Panther” cartoons, you need some commited drug abuse. A similar case could be made about “The Roadrunner”. And curiously enough, those revelations dawned during a completely D&D free night. Merry christmas to all.

First impressions and Brooklyn


I wanted to write some impressions of the town so far, but hey, I discovered I said it just right in an email I just sent to a friend. Edited for content. “The trip was mind numbingly boring. I discovered nice things about girls in Ireland, reflected on my own travel gear, that kind of […]

Dublin airport and travel reflections


I’m on my way. I have a 4 hour scale in Dublin, still 2h30 to go. Now, I’ll say this, from all the airports in which I’ve been stranded, Dublin’s is probably the best. It’s not like I remembered it, but hey, more than a decade of water has passed under those bridges, and in […]

The YU ES of EI!


I’m leaving for America. Yeah, I’m seriously fed up with all this class bullshit here in Europe. Gonna sail for the new world, pursue the… No, that’s bullshit.
