Bubble Encounter in Spain

Marjan writes:
“I have been traveling in Castile (central Spain).
In Madrid, I encountered some bubble artist and did my best to take pictures.
The first is a photograph of the facade of the bullring in Madrid.
Every day there are bullfights.
The second picture is of a very nice bubble. It was flying around in the
“Parque del Buen Retiro” in the center of Madrid.

Thank you Marjan! Beautiful pictures!

“Und Gott läßt bald die Erde beben”

Und Gott läßt bald die Erde beben” Nina Hagen’s ‘Lorelei’ was in our minds while we walked through the Caldera de Taburiente.
Silence, wonder and overwhelming nature made us feel small humans in the midst of  sheer power. Force that change the earth’s surface constantly.

“Last Night I Dreamt Of San Pedro”

San Pedro“Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away” Madonna sang in her song ‘La Isla Bonita’.

We found last weeks the song about the village and the Island so much to be true.

Education in the beauty of soap bubbles

Hugo de Groot
Hugo de Groot thought that the soap bubbles might be hardly visable, but i think that they are just fine. The intension of showing mysterious beauty to this twin (his grandchildren) in Spain is clearly to see.
