Xmas sunset

Maresme sunset

Last Tuesday I was riding my Yamaha RD 350 on the fantastic curvy roads of Arenys de Munt-Llavaneres on the way to Barcelona when I suddenly saw this sunset. I couldn't avoid to pull over have a spliff and enjoy the view.
I took this set of photos.

The photo above got me thinking today. Dont know why but as soon as I saw it simultaneously Pink Floyd 'Time' lyrics came to my mind

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

How small we are. It really makes you think. You know the english saying 'Give a monkey a brain....'.
Make the most of it, like my friend Kwasi says: "Live life like its ya last minute , make it good!! ".
At this very moment.I think its time to enjoy some creamy pints of Guinness in my local Iris

Vallentuna Sweden

I got send this nice photos the other day. They are from Vallentuna, a beautiful village in the south of Sweden.
Vallentuna is a small town which is located about 20 minutes drive from Stockholm.
My friend Susann lives there and I asked her to take some photos while she was jogging around the village.
They 've got snow from October to April-May and in winter it gets dark pretty early in the afternoon.

Susann's House

The photo above was taken in my friends home one morning. I wonder how they go to work with so much snow!
If we get this weather here in the Spanish cities just for a couple of days the whole country would be collapsed!
Vallentuna countryside

Iced lakes. Sweden is got loads. If this the sort of weather they get in the south of Sweden, where is supposed to be warmer, I can't imagine how it would be like to live 1000 km. up north! Maybe thats why we get Swedish visitor here in Spain in winter wearing sandals and shorts?

This is in Spring....obviously

I find the style and construction of the houses in Vallentuna pretty funny, compared with the ones we have here in Spain. They are very different.

Stockholm city center

There is always a reason to complain about the weather, we all do. Its something I found funny wherever I traveled to. In the Caribbean people says its too humid, Central America too hot, in the north of England and Scotland is always raining so they don't get much sun, Madrid weather is too dry, and the north of Spain too cold [Tell a Swede about!], etc etc ..but I guess at the end we have to get used to it, whatever the conditions are.
Or maybe not...?

But Sweden, under the perspective of a Mediterranean person like me sounds like an interesting and beautiful [but hard at the same time] place to be, although the idea to to be surrounded with loads of blonde haired Swedish chicks everywhere makes the place even more attractive!

What kind of times are these
No one hears, no one sees

I got a lie
A fat fuckin' lie
About a law
Idiots obey
They made it easy
Now cheaters have their way
You hi-di-ho's
You're living on your knees

Now there's a time...
But i say non like now
There's a time
Where idiots are bound
If there's a pole
Planted in your back
Then you're a fixture
Not a man

You know that man
You hate?
You look more like him
Every day everyday
2 good shoes
Won't save your soul
Tides are turning
Idiots Rule-JA

This is a snakeskin jacket! And for me it's a symbol of my individuality, and my belief... in personal freedom!-Wild At Heart
You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy christmas your arse
I pray God its our last

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Cant make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

Fairytale in New York-Kristy Mccoy&The Pogues

Can anyone explain?
The rules are insane
I try to refrain
Confusing myself again

This is our home but what can we do
Millions of vehicles still burning their fuel
My conscience is going and hope yours is too
Will we ever learn too… Promises bound
White papers not enough
Heads to the ground
There’s beauty but not enough

Poisoning glow
Seasons unchanged so
I’ve got to get to know, that
Something’s we just won’t know

This is our home but what can we do
Millions of vehicles still burning their fuel
My conscience is going and hope yours is too

Will we ever learn too… Promises bound
White papers not enough
Heads to the ground
There’s beauty but not enough

Sky is red
Still we learn, wild
Skies out there

Pond Life-The Reegs

So we laid back and we watched space revolve
With bodies of astronauts long cold
Blinking like lonely satellites
Where we left vapour trails
Through cotton skies
Come on let's scratch the heavens one last time
Cause we're all sinking in the sunshine
And though you'd love to stay
Well you said you must be on your way
To where the rainbows and ufos
Fall ten at a time
In a shower of glitter and gold


Everything will be OK in the end. If its not OK, its not the end.

But there is always the hills...
