Come to give us life

With this huge block of stone that simulates marble (and placed at calle Doctrinos), the National Museum of Sculpture calls on Valladolid´s citizens to visit the museum and give the necessary "life" to be more than a "storehouse of history and art". It can be read:
Without you, we are 32,890 tons of stone, 1,352 cubic meters of painted wood. Without you, the National Sculpture Museum of Valladolid is a storehouse of history and art. Come to give us life.

A classic event before Christmas

Yesterday took place the XVIII Nougat Race in the nearby village of Arroyo de La Encomienda. During the race it rained heavily, so the 780 runners who started the race ended up soaked.

BTW, this picture was taken by El Norte de Castilla´s photographer, Ricardo Otazo.

El Árbol...

...is a supermarket company based in Valladolid which has been recently bought by the multinational DIA. Competence in food retail sector is brutal and, as always, only the strongest prevail. By the way, this precise supermarket is at the site of the former Cines Vistarama, closed in 2000.

The University´s baroque facade...

...is under restoration at last. It's been a year and a half since its perimeter was fenced off, so as we say in spanish, nunca es tarde si la dicha es buena (it's never too late if the end is good).

Last show on earth!!!

After being forced to cancel the inaugural show of his national tour, Bunbury promised to relocate the concerts at future dates. That promise was fulfilled yesterday night at the Miguel Delibes Cultural Center, to the delight of his many fans in the city. The announcing poster seems very attractive and appealing to me.

Día de las Velitas

Little Candles' Day is one of the most observed traditional holidays in Colombia. It is celebrated on December 7th, on the eve of the Immaculate Conception, which is a public holiday in Colombia (and in Spain). This day is the unofficial start of the Christmas season in that country. People place candles and paper lanterns on their windows, balconies, porches, sidewalks, streets, parks and squares, in short, everywhere they can be seen. As far as I know, this is at least the second year it´s celebrated in Valladolid too.
