Pues para arreglar las cosas de mi padre fui al alemania. Estuve alla por unos dias. y el tiempo con mis hermanas fui muy bien... vale, y la comida alemana ;)

todavia estoy triste por mi padre, pero vale... es la vida...

una cosita que he olvidado en mi ultimo post... en marzo empeze con leer libros en castellano... por fin!

leyendo ahora: Miguel Strogoff - Julio Verne


so in order to sort out my fathers things I went to Germany for a few days. quality time with my sisters and german food...

still sad about the loss, but hey... circle of life...

and what I forgot in my last post was, that in March i was finally able to start reading books in spanish. man, am I happy... I'm getting there ;)

what happened in the past 6 months? too much. I can't even remember myself ;)
  • job is going well. passed my probationary period and went to Chicago for a week there in July to the headoffice. Sitting down at lake Michigan, viewing the skyline wasn't a bad experience ;)
  • visited Mallorca (Thanks C. for the invite). fiesta de espuma en Palmanyola, hehe.
  • moved into a cosy lil flat in Poble Sec. Love the walk in Montjuic once in a while (plus the visits to this outdoor bar - chirringuito - up there.)
  • B. visited me, also J.D. and T., J + C., M., so did my brothers.
  • was finally able to start reading books in Spanish! yay!
  • went to Madrid twice. Watched my first bull fight there. missed the best one out of the the six fights since we went to the toilet ).
  • had about 7 or so dinner parties at my place.
  • won the first place in a costume party in Hierba Buenas.
  • started compiling this google map with my favourite places in Barcelona.

well, and last week my dad passed away... hence that photo here... not sure yet when the funeral will take place, but looks like I need to pop over soon... he died just 2 days before his 80th birthday. and no, he didn't suffer... but still... :'-(

hoping you are well!

P.D.: testing this outbound link to a cool hotel in Valladolid.

Archiving - moving from Typepad to Blogger

Since Flickr no longer supports posting to Typepad (and I am too lazy really to move all my pics or do it manually) I decided to move to Blogger. Blogger now has the great feature though that everyone who posts more than 50 items a day is a spammer. that includes someone who imports his old blog...being marked as a spammer now means, that you can't post pictures direcly from Flickr. heck, that was the reason why i wanted to move to Blogger...

Soo... my personal workaround (instead of changing the import file and reducing it to maybe 45 post) was, to just import them to a blog that I will not use, and add link to that one, calling it archive. voila:

there you find all the old posts from 2007 - 2011.

cheers, Klaussi Martillo
