Good morning lovely people!
I have been having problems with power outs and all day we have been without power. when the power finally came back on, there was a power surge that blew our system. So here I am, In the middle of the night. Fed up and I'm afraid it's going to be a quicky.
First off is a card from Germany:
It i entitled: Dancing with the Devil at the volcano in Fimmvörðuháls, April 010, South Iceland.
The tamps are beautiful as well as interesting.
Philippine "Pina" Bausch (27 July 1940 – 30 June 2009) was a German dancer and choreographer who, with a blend of movement, sound, and prominent stage sets, and with performers during the development of a piece (a style now known as Tanztheater), became an influence in the field of modern dance from the 1970s on.
The second card also comes from Germany. It features those typical German cookies that they make at Christmas time. I had a German colleague that used to make them (and bring them into work too.) They are really delicious.
I'm going to link up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard at altered Book Lover. Please join us there with a beverage in your blog post.
My qualifyer is a mug (without a drink) which might make you smile.
In our language group Intercambio, I help Spanish people with their English. There are so many exception to the rules that it becomes really difficult to learn English. This is one of them:
The weekend before, I went to Fuengirola (South Spain) for a conference. Luckily I didn't go for the weather because it was awful. There was a gale blowing. This was the view from the hotel. Look at those poor palm trees. I know Elizabeth loves palm trees, but these look rather wild.I took the opportunity to eat a lot of fish and sea food, as my hubby doesn't like fish. So here was my chance.
Here is another drink, a Radler (Lager beer with lemon), and we were in a Thai noodle bar. This might not seem something out of the ordinary, but believe me, if you live in rural Spain like I do then a noodle bar is a real treat! (Btw, I had rice!)
Drink, drink, drink! (Radler again)
This was the view from our room. The sea is on the left. It is a typical coastal resort. Nothing special. But I did enjoy myself because the conference was good and I got together with friends I see only once a year. (And I ate a lot of sea food)
Here are two breakfast photos. Here we are having coffee in a cup (Quite often here they serve coffee in a glass)
This is the typical Andalucian breakfast: toasted bread with oil and tomatoes plus coffee. Very nice.
Hmm, have I shown you this one before..?
That is it from me today.
Happy T-Day all!
