Truly a lot better than your worst thoughts.

simple life makes life so simple (and cool, sometimes...)

A mild, himid and rainy day, and here I sit on my coach with nothing ahead but the promise of listening to the light beat of drops falling on the outside and, even more enjoyable, to the dozen of discs collection of brazilian music (all the possible styles you can imagine), which I have borrowed from a brazilian friend I'm sure I'm going to like even more of what I already like by the end of the day. Believe me, a lighting might strike me today and I'd die happy.

Happy 2008!!!!!!!!!!

All best wishes x this brand new year!!! (and if you are reading this, a million thanks x still visiting this site)

Hope you enjoyed a nice x-mas with all your dear ones and that these first days of January have brought you a little something of all the wonderful things I wish you experience in the months to come - I'll check with the gods above to make sure you really have all your dreams come true, ok! ; )

Not that I am making any New Year resolutions, but I do hope to be around here a lot more than I have done in the last twelve months. I am currently working on a way to improve internet connection and "network" both PC's at home, so if everything goes ok, I might be able to connect soon to the web from my home PC (right now, only my girl's PC is connected and since she is usually working with it, it's not that I feel like interrupting - ¿what would I say, I mean... "Hey you, stop your damn job and lemme blog a littlebit!!"... I might try that, but then you'd have to read all sad posts about why she left me and that kinda things ; )

Anyways, I am just happy to have time to drop by and see how you are all doing... And don't take me wrong (like I am flirting with you or something like that), but I do believe your are all lokking superb this brand new year.

Besos & Kisses!

My trip to Athens...

Yes, sir! That blurry thing all the way uphill is The Acropolis...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Greeks invented The Acropolis because, just like Romans and other ancient cultures, they loved ruins and gigantic stone buildings...

And they also had some really pissy Gods living up those hills, who really get pissed off if they didn't get their right share of temples and faithful adoration... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
They also invented Piraeus and other ports because they really cracked their asses off with wars and that sort of things and, back in those old crazy Mediterranean days, there was no way to win a war -or even a tiny battle- without a decent navy...

Once they won their wars, they took money back from defeated enemies and went shopping around the beautiful streets of Plaka and Monastiraki...

Where they could always stop for a celebration drink, in a nice terrace...

Or enjoy delicious celebration meals!!!

They never stopped looking at the hills, though...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
... just in case the Gods got pissed again and claimed for a new war!!

Some years (luckily) they prefered to stay in peace, just enyoing their wonderful panoramic views and keeping an eye on Athens.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I had the chance to enjoy a few days in Athens, a couple of weeks ago. It was for work reasons, but I made the most out of whatever second I had free to enjoy the city. Very interesting place. A bit huge for european city standards, chaotic and slightly polluted, but very attractive indeed. Loved the people and the food. I might be going back to work there again in a month or so. I'll see if I can get new (and better!!) pictures.

It took me eons to get to post this line... WTF has blogger done?...

... and so it will be

Had everything gone right, I should have been leaving for India in about a week, a day more or less... But destiny's been a bit shitty with Mrs. G's health (nothing serious, guys, but she's gotta take it easy for some time), so she's been recommended to avoid long hours of flying (bye, bye Delhi!), watch out strictly what she eats –her liver on strike it seems- (bye, bye delicious and spicy Indian food) and to avoid unnecessary stress, like long rides in crowded trains and things like that (and who, in his sound mind, would want to go India and miss the excitement of what must be one of the most colourful train systems in the world)… AAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

With that on our shoulders, after we had gotten our visas (bye, bye 150 euros!!) and all suggested vaccination (bye, bye other 50 euros!!!... but good thing we had not paid for our tickets yet), we’ve had to retrace steps and go back to Plan B… Plan B which, if chronologically intended, would not really be a Plan B, but more like a former Plan A, once abandoned… Summarizing, we’ll be heading for Rome and southern Italy, as soon as February kicks in. My millions of faithful readers (ok, maybe half a million or less) might remember that I was just about to go to Rome last year, somewhere around March, when I had to start on a new job and basically re-structure most of my life… Ok, I just had to re-structure my work shift and my work place, but you know that I enjoy travelling and planning my visits, so if one of them gets screwed I tend to excessive existential dramatization and really get blue, blue, blue...

Of course, I’m delighted to go to Italy… But I’d been a lot happier if nothing had intervened on the trip to India, I must confess. Reason for heading to Italy is that we’ll be making most of the travelling by sea (which can hardly be stressful to anyone, unless the Mother of all Storms hits your boat, but I seriously doubt that happens in a boring waves sea like the Mediterranean) and any inland connection (either by train or bus) can easily be adapted for short rides… Needless to say, it’s a destiny that we’ve also been longing for, for quite a few years now.

We’ll see what happens…

Kisses mucho, people!

-on another shitty note, I was just about to finish the first chapter for the novel I pretend to write and my PC died... cool, isn't it?... I guess I'll have to get a new piece of junk, but that will have to wait for after I come back (if I have any money left)... First things first, like grandmas like to say)
