It’s been a long time

IMG_7610There’s not much to say, just “it’s been a long time” but finally I am here, ready to write some new stuff and share tons of photos with you guys… All this time I’ve been so busy writing and writing to collaborate with a website about travels and tourist stuff and was almost impossible to write here, and as soon as my articles where published I’ll share’m with you. 

For now, here is a photo of the very last sun of 2013 adding the amazing glow to the historic center of my hometown. And a little bit late, Happy 2014 🙂

In the middle of nowhere

Hace un mes regresé de Italia y aún no me acostumbro de nuevo a estar en casa. Claro, extrañaba a mi familia terriblemente y a mis amigos que me han traído de aquí para allá. Esta vez llegamos a… bueno, no tengo idea donde. Entre caminos de terracería y preguntando dónde nacía el río llegamos a un pueblo que parece un pueblo fantasma.

It’s a month since I came back from Italy and I am not habituated to be in home yet. Of course I missed my family and friends so badly and we were rolling from here to there. This weekend we arrived to… well, I have no idea where. Asking where was the river source we drove in dirt roads and we found this town which look like a ghost town.

Once upon a time in a Royal Palace…

Once upon a time there was a girl traveling with a memory keeper and a notebook…

I confess I am obsessed with the royal life, well not the current royal life, I am talking about the royal life of the XV or XVIII centuries. Today we finally visited La Reggia di Caserta, a beautiful and huge palace just a few minutes from Naples. Kind of Versailles, this palace was constructed for the Bourbon kings of Naples and actually, is the largest palace in Europe with more than 2 million m3.

This amazing palace has 1,200 rooms, including two dozen state apartments, a large library, and a theatre, some of those still furnished by original pieces (Bed heads and linens, bathroom furnitures and a huge collection of antique books in the library). The gardens and fountains are pieces of art. Such a great place to visit, as a museum and gallery inside of the rooms (expositions changing once in a while) or just walking or riding thru the gardens.

Unplugged

Well, now I am trying to enjoy my last days in Italy. It’s been so hard to say good bye to my friends cz I know will be so difficult to meet again those who live actually in the other side of the world.  Now I’m in Naples spending all the possible time with him and his family. This week we visited a little town called Palena about an hour by car from Naples. Small and very quiet, the perfect place to be unplugged from everything.

PS. There is not a place like Palena to sleep very well! Good night.

Spring break is over and we are back to the Institute. Tons of homework and now, developing final projects . Here an attempt to do a high speed photo using strawberries and bowl with water.

El break terminó y ahora estamos de regreso al Instituto. Con mucha tarea, proyectos para el fin del semestre, etc.  Les comparto esta fresita, para clase de fotografía, que más bien parece un ensayo de un high speed. 

Sueño, mucho sueño y los párpados me pesan.
