This Week

This week, thanks to my friend Alejandro, I had the opportunity of participating in a really nice project. I cannot say more for now, but you'll definitely see it when is ready.

Meanwhile here are some photos I took this (incredibly hot) week around Buenos Aires :)

How was your week/weekend?

Albert Einstein's Words of Wisdom

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today starts the year of the water dragon, most powerful creature of all represented in the Chinese calendar. "In Chinese culture, dragon years are widely believed to be good for marriage, birth and achieving great success, but they also have their dark side -- the mythical creature holds potent powers over water and rain, bringing good harvests but also floods and other natural disasters." Very 2012 everything, don't you think?

I hope love surround all of you with full hands, as the fortune cookie says.

Happy 4710 everyone! x

More Random Brighton

More random Brighton just because I've been watching my last year pictures lately. This incredible sunny day I wondered around town with Chris and the wonderful Nem (if you are ever in Brighton, you got to go to Nem's pub, you're gonna have a super nice time!). We walked the lanes, had a nice Vietnamese lunch (that included Pho, one of my favorite soups in the whole wide world) and then went to the beach to have some cider. Lovely Brighton, innit?

Outrance was the word of the day in my Dictionary App and since I couldn't come out with a title for this post I use it... an outrance resource? (did I use it correctly?).

I spend my weekend enjoying the last moments of my lazy week. Organized photos (the ones in the post are from lovely Brighton, I'll be posting more), went to the auto-cinema with some friends but without a car, read a little my new book, and now I'm watching the Golden Globes.

Was your weekend as lazy as mine?

Traveling is one of the best things in life, without a doubt. When you can't travel the second best thing is discover new places around your house, and so I did yesterday when my friend Giselle took me to meet Nordelta, her sister's neighborhood in the north of Buenos Aires. We enjoyed a quiet afternoon, swam in the pool, fed the ducks and an occasional otter, drank coffee and headed back downtown in time for Tintin (which I really liked, btw). It was a lovely Friday :)

Any big plans for this weekend? Hope you have a nice one! x

I wanted to return to Buenos Aires because I wanted to start all my projects as soon as possible, but the truth is that since I came here I've been really lazy, I guess the unbearable heat has something to do with that. Procrastination, that's so my trade mark.

In my laziness (that definitely has to be over by the end of this week), I've managed to start the gym again, a new new diet, pay bills and that sort of stuff, finished reading Roseanna and started A Fine Balance and I've seen for the first time lots of episodes of Modern Family. Is good, everybody told me so, now I understand... and I love Gloria. Sometimes I feel like her when I talk in English.

The photos are from my local park. Yesterday I took a walk there and read a while :) And speaking of books, have a look a this nice video called The Joy of Books.

40 degrees

Today the Real Feel in Buenos Aires is higher than 40 degrees, so the only thing in my mind are my treasured memories of beaches and the sea. In this temperature it doesn't make sense to be someplace else, innit?

The beaches in the photos are:

1 y 2. Playa Grande, La Guaira, Venezuela.
3. La Barra, Punta del Este, Uruguay.
4. José Ignacio, Punta del Este, Uruguay.
5. Durdle Door, Lulworth State (English Channel), Dorset, UK.
6. Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK.
7. La Pared, Península de Macanao, Isla de Margarita, Venezuela.
8. Playa Grande, Choroní, Venezuela.
9. Sidmouth, Devon, UK.
10 y 11. Brighton, UK.
12. Los Roques, Venezuela.
13. Naiguatá, Venezuela.
14. Playa Larga, Todasana, Venezuela.
