Libros 2009 - Books 2009


Se me olvidò poner aqui los libros que me dieron la vuelta en la cabeza en 2009.
Ahh the books of 2009!
Cold - Bill Streever : all you ever wanted to know about the cold temperatures!
Justice - Michael Sandel : a lucid challenge to our thoughts about what is and what is not just.
Born to run - Christopher McDougall - a crazy account of going down to mexico to run an ultramarathon with the Tarahumara indians

Guatemala y el caballo Bacilòn

Back from 10 days of pleasure combined with some hunger and bed bugs.
The contravocitos, with the help of Bacilòn, crossed the Cuchumatan mountains, the 3000 meter altiplano. Like the arch of Noah, animals of all sorts, as well as lots of children, and many potatoes.

Cooling - ready to warm up

Vacation approaches and two images illustrate the last few days: the cold and the fashion style to cycle to work at -12°C. Then the snow makes the final presence and the cardinals fly around in search for the food.


Next stop : Todos Santos Cuchumatan - Guatemala

Will arrive there walking the altiplano on th 28th December!

Amarcord - El Palladium

I guess I was 16 or 17 years old, and not allowed to see these films (las peliculas de Arte y Ensayo).

Amarcord of Fellini was one of the great moments, and now more than 30 years later still pops up in my imagination - not only because of the scene of the Tabacalera.

Walden

Some 25 years ago in Rochester, I bought the book of Thoreau. I do not know why, but I know that it was revealing to me.

Now, finally, I visit the place, and I can live for some hours the impressions that he must have had those days.

Thoreau was 27 when he moved to Walden Pond, he died at 44 of tubrculosis.

The time has come.

It is possible that the most creative and lively part be over
It is also possible that worthy things lie ahead
For now, an encounter with 50 at
