#112day2016

Since 2009 and a tripartite convention signed by the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU, 11 February (11/2) is the European 112 Day. At this occasion, events take place to promote the existence and the appropriate use of the EU emergency number, such as the Open Door Days (to which I have been lucky to attend to) celebrated at the 112 Castilla y Leon Emergency Center, which aims to inform all citizens of the daily work carried out at this place.

La Española Cuando Besa...

The translation of this bar´s name would be "The Spanish woman when she kisses..." and refers to this pasodoble´s lyrics. It's worth going to this original bar that occupies the three illuminated floors of this building.

Carnival: Defiant

Although I have cheated a little bit, given that I took this picture at a cosplay parade last year. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the carnival wherever you are.

Republican flag

Although Spain is a constitutional monarchy, there are people who longs for the Republic and doesn´t hesitate to paint everywhere the colors of its flag, red, yellow and purple.

Guided visit

A group of young students at an exhibition of Russian painting of the twentieth century. I was a little surprised when the guide asked them if they knew who Lenin and Stalin were and none of them responded. Not in vain, both were important characters in the history of the past century.

A former hotel

This building was the former Hotel Inglaterra, opened in 1886, and which had to change its name to Hotel of the Italians, as the Franco regime didn´t allow trade names of unfriendly countries.

The street isn´t yours, dudes!

It was only a matter of time that those with no respect for the private property and the hard work of others, wrote their horrendous tags on this beautiful and artistic mural. What a shame!

I guess they will feel very proud of their monotonous and senseless work.
