In memoriam Gabo

Also at the Public Library you can enjoy the exhibition Posters: Film and Literature, an initiative originated in Mexico City that gives voice to the work of young designers. The artists are based on word and photogram and transform them into their posters, always risky and surprising. Like this one of the film "Love in the Time of Cholera", adapted from the novel by recently deceased Gabriel García Márquez. Serve this post as my posthumous tribute to him.

World Book Day!

Today we remember the death of two geniuses of literature, such as William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, although Cervantes died one day before, on April 22, 1616. Among other events, yesterday the Public Library organized several aloud readings in the narrative hall. Should be recalled that silent reading wasn´t a common practice in Europe until well into the Middle Ages.

Year I after the bombings

Today is held the 118th edition of the Boston Marathon, and in everyone´s mind will be the memory of last year´s bombing attack. The thousands of runners will have to overcome the emotion to deal with the 42k of the world's oldest marathon. The photo is from last year´s Valladolid Half Marathon.

Pay attention!

Seems to be saying this man in the mural that adorns this bar at Calle Juan Mambrilla. I don´t know which is its current name (the bar´s I´m referring to), although time ago it was named Norma Jean.

The flaming champion visits Huerta del Rey

After winning the Spanish handball league undefeated after 25 matches, FC Barcelona (red & blue shirt) had no trouble to beat BM Valladolid by 25-35 yesterday evening. By the way, in reference to the post´s title, Huerta del Rey is where our team plays at home. A little clarification never hurts.

Eclipse Collective strikes again!

This group of restless local artists has organized an exhibition in homage to Celtas Cortos, one of the best known and most successful music bands of the city. Their music has been a reference and a mirror to look in for the rest of local musicians who have followed them. This interesting exhibition was at Jose María Luelmo Civic Center, although it´s finished.

A stunning show!

Intermission at the premiere last Thursday. The show lasts almost 3 hours, so many people had risen from their seats to stretch their legs or go to the toilet.
