Hello lovely people.
Here we are again! Ready for the T-Party! Why don't you join us with a blogpost with a beverage in it. We meet at Bluebeard and Elizabeth's Altered Book Lover.
Before I share my drink I want to show you a beautiful postcard I received this week:
It was sent to my by Susanne Dellefant in München, Germany. She writes that she is an artist and that the painting on the card is one of her paintings called "Tänzerin" (dancer). I have found her website if you'd like to see more of her work. I think this painting is wonderful. She reminds me of a flamenco dancer at the fair.
The next thing I want to show you is a poster of a fascinating project to promote our area. We live in a very interesting 'Badlands'. Someone asked me the other day what that was.... my understanding is that Badlands are a type of dry terrain where softer sedimentary rocks and clay-rich soils have been extensively eroded by wind and water. They are characterized by steep slopes and minimal vegetation. Wikipedia says: They are often difficult to navigate by foot. Badlands often have a spectacular color display that alternates from dark black/blue coal stria to bright clays to red scoria.
Here is a short video where you can see how beautiful it is.
It's been a busy week here in our village. During the whole week it was Feria, the fair. It is a week long fun fair, parties and activities and contests. Our photo club held an exhibition in the little park in the centre.
Last week we were in the Extremadura part of Spain, in a medieval town called Plasencia. I have already shown you photos of the wall. Today I'll show you a few other things:
An interesting building (above)
I love beautiful doors. Inside one of these doors we saw this:
Our evening meal was taken at the hotel and here you can see the first course: gazpacho, the classical Spanish cold soup. Very refreshing. My drink (red wine) is also in the picture, qualifying it for the T-Party. The little bits on the side are raw onion, bell pepper and chopped tomatoes. You are meant to sprinkle them over your soup if so desired.
I hope you enjoyed the photos (and the video if you had a chance to watch it),
