all gargoyles point to heaven

Walking around the Colonial Zone we found this little treasure, 26 gargoyles just “sitting” there.

scale model

Sorting pics I came around this scale model made by under privileged children in one of the poorest areas of the city. It depicts their neighborhood in such a whimsical way that it almost makes you forget their precarious surroundings.

Cold Case 2: The case of the itchy topiary

Victim: Needlepoint Topiarius
Born: 1998-1999 approx.
Known facts: Subject was abandoned after its caretaker suffered a severe wool related rash. It being the second topiary found in such a short amount of time is making us look into the possibility of a serial case. No visible wounds. Further examination required. Surgical gloves are a must.

Case 1: Solved!

I'm taking it today to my aunt's, I hope she likes it.

Juan Sebastian Elcano (the ship)

Recently while driving through the Avenida del Puerto we were surprised to see the ship in the Santo Domingo Port. Having a Spaniard in the car with us, we HAD to pull over. She was amazed, as it is a well loved icon for Spanish history, that the first time she was able to see it was in a port so far from home.

For those who don’t know, the ship is the third largest tall ship in the world, and it serves a as school ship. (you know, were the future king of Spain trained and everything).

rules rule!

After a year of working non-stop for 24/7 I decided to have weekends for myself and not read any work related emails. My clients know about it, and I have to say, for the most part (there have been two little urgent things), they have been very understanding. I guess that having rules is not bad at all.

more Biarritz please

It was cold, not crowded, quiet, lots of Chloe, Fendi, Lalique… But I felt at home.
If I loved it at winter, I can’t wait to see it at summertime.
