quite a normal day
I’ve been the whole day working on my computer…programming and programming.....what a boring day!!
Today what I’m going to do is trying to answer most of your comments….You are a great support!
First of all, Jonathan, thanks for your corrections and your inspiring post. I've enjoyed your walking story and all what you've told us about the dunes and Leba. I’d be grateful if you could talk about polish traditions and what the main attractions of Poland are.I don't mean to be personal, but after having lived in Poland for so long do you still miss any english tradition or anything special from the UK?
Antonio, Yes! It’s usual to eat churros con chocolate for breakfast. For me it's something usual after long nights out. As you said, churros with hot chocolate are eaten the whole year round. I can’t wait any longer for you gazpacho manchego recipe. I agree with you, I like the manchego gazpacho much more than the andaluz. For all what you’ve said, you’ve to be an excellent cook. To be fair I consider myself as an average cook, and as Anastasia has pointed out, what I most enjoy is cooking for someone else. It’s much funnier and gratifying. If I’m alone at home and I’ve to make something to eat for myself, I get too lazy and I end up eating just a sandwich or a salad.
Ana Paula, I like your Christmas traditions. It’s another way of seeing Christmas. I think that the way one has lived Christmas and its traditions, influence a lot the Christmas feelings one has, and one's Christmas mood. Traditions of Brazil sound pretty exotic for me, even when here in Spain it isn’t by far as cold as in other European Countries. I’d like to experience them. Well, as you know, I’m a sea lover. So, having a dip at midnight and jump seven waves has to be really funny, and coming into contact with nature is one the best choice to start off a new year on the right foot.
Leila, I agree with you. The daVinci code is a good reading to improve the English fluency, but personally the plot was foreseeable, and it recalls me other books. therefore, I found it a bit naïve, too.
Ernesto, yes! I like Mecano, although they don’t belong to my generation. They got extremely famous in the late 80s till and the early 90s. However, they made history in the Spanish pop music. Their songs have never died, and they're as famous as they used to be. In Madrid is running a successful musical of Mecano and all their songs. And guess what? My plan for this New year’s Eve is going to Madrid to see it in an special performance for that night. I’m going to spend four days in Madrid and its surroundings. In fact I’ve been to Madrid for many times and it’s quite familiar for me, because I’ve some relatives living there and I don’t miss the opportunity to go there every time I can.
Habooba, Olive grows in every southern region of Spain. From Castilla La mancha to Andalucia. However, the major olive producer is Andalucia.
Hyoshil, thanks for your comment! You’re so kind.
Naheed, Thanks you so much for your comments and corrections. I’ve to say that I also like those intelligent comedy films, many of them in black and white, but they're timeless.
Mariangela, in spain there’s no typical cake that people usually eat for Christmas. On the other hand, there’re typical regional cakes. For example, in Elche you'll be able to try tarta de elche or tarta de almendras. It’s a sponge cake made of a mixture of almonds, sugar and honey, all cover by meringue. Personally, I prefer a home-made chocolate cake made with layers of biscuits dunked in milk, custard and hot chocolate, of course, after it has been cold down for two or three hours. By the way, I love panettone! It’s delicious….In fact, I’m an Italian food lover!
Christine, thanks for your comment! I didn’t know about St.Nicholas Day festivity. In Spain, St. Nicholas isn’t as traditional as there is.
Anastasia, related to one of the quotes you said.....you need someone to love you, while you're searching for somebody to love....I think it’s true that everybody likes to be loved and desired. But, in my opinion, first one must love oneself to find one’s Prince. You have to know, love and respect yourself to be then respected and loved. If not, you could get confused by all those admirers and not know clearly what is what you really want…. That’s from my own experience.
Silwal, it would be nice if you could talk about some of your traditions….As you said referring to Christian culture, I’m not up-to-date on other traditions and I enjoy learning new things, above all related to culture differences. Do you have any special festivity?
That's all for now! I hope you've enjoyed my paella recipe :)
See you tomorrow!
