Going to US

I am now officially on my way to the States. The Amsterdam - Minneapolis flight which I was supposed to take was cancelled, so I had to stay in Cph until now and am flying over Chicago instead. I've had four hours of waiting, but under controlled circumstances in the KLM lounge, with free food, booze and Internet. Dangerous :p States, here I come!

In travel

Finally I had the time to sleep eight hours. I am at my grandma's in Szczecin, eating all kinds of Polish culinary wonders :) Flew here from Warszawa yesterday, the flight took 50 minutes and the airport outside Szczecin was everything but big, in fact even smaller than the train station in Sitges :) It was really nice to stay at your place, Joanna & Bogi, thanks again! I will post some pictures later, as I am now using the modem connection (even though it's faster than bluetooth, Bogi :)

Welcome, all new Spanish readers :) It was sad to leave you, but I will certainly come and visit you in the near future. It has been great six months, thank you!

In Warszawa I spent some 30 hours, holding a presentation for the Polish office and being introduced to all of my native colleagues (that were present). It was really great, and the office very cosy, so I hope to be back there pretty soon!

Pappa har ett hus på Marstrand

"Var nere i Tyskland, sen åkte jag ner till Båstad... Malmöområdet...Skåne... " - killen behärksar ju vädersträcken...

pappa betalar ju...

You have to speak Swedish for this... or... be glad if you don't!

Being Catalan in Igualada

The last weekend I spent together with my Catalan friend Pere. On Saturday we took the car to his family house in Igualada and had a Catalan fika with Peres family. They are fond of good food, the nice people here J During the night we went out to the “city” to have a bite and found a cozy restaurant, and after that we hit the bars. It was supercrowded and loud as hell, so after a drink we went to a club, which showed to be even more crowded, this time with a clientele aged 16-20 with some luck-seeking exceptions of course… we left very soon. Apparently Igualada is not THE Metropolis, but it certainly has nice restaurants. They also have their own El Bosque des Fades (a bar designed as the elven forest), which is bigger and more detailed than the one in Barcelona. On our way home we were stopped for a control by the police and Pere had to blow. Luckily he had only had a glass of wine J I told you man!

Yesterday we had lunch with Peres parents again, this time in Esparraguera. It was the first time I had snails, and it was pretty good, but I prefer the rice and sauce and rabbit prepared by Peres mum. And sorry Pere, but the other thing… I am not used to it! After that we went on a safari to the surrounding mountains, not far from Montserrat, had a walk among the olive trees and ate some fresh almonds.

Some nice people decided to shoot off fireworks for about 10 minutes at 2 a.m.
