Javier Rami

Javier Rami explaining the details of his icredible masterpiece: a manger full of moving statues.

Located in his garage, in Peralta de la Sal, Javier likes to explain to visitors all the tiny details and scenes that he has recreated: from day to night we have seen snow to fall down, a cocodrile eating a goose, the smith forging a sword, mother pig giving milk to its piglets. Two kids play with a baloon that moves from one another. Smoke is coming from the houses, it's thyme that burns as needed. The anglels descending from the roof of the garage... till more than 300 moving figures.

This manger is powered with a complex labrint of recycled engines, compressors, pumps, hand made power control rouletes, bicycle chains... all of them working in harmony to give life to this incredible engineering marvel.

Don't miss it if you can!. Will open from dec-4th to Jan-6th, saturdays, sundays and holidays from 11 to 13 h. and from 16 to 20 h. More information at: +34 652 094 523

Peace, good weather and better company

This saturday morning.

The hermitage on the image was built in 1536. You can see its unique location in this previous post. There we met Ferran, a nice climber, and Pingu, his dog.

My moment of faith

7am. I'm walking while the 1st lights of the day start to reflect on the walls of the monastery. The heavy bronze bells start to sound slowly, grave, loudly... the echoes of the mountain add the mistery to that magic moment. Can't be explained, it has to be experienced.

The elephant and the mummy

This sunday with the first beams of sunlight.

Take a look at the image and let me know if you recognize The pregnant, the Elephant and the Mummy in the image.

Torrazzo's astronomical clock

In the 4th floor of Cremona's Torrazzo there is what they claim the bigest astronomical clock in the world.

The image it has an excess of contrast, but was needed to show the beatifull pale paintings of the zodiac constellations.

Santa Maria Assunta from il Torrazzo

This summer, in the city of Cremona, we climbed to the top of Il Torrazzo. This magnificent tower was completed in 1309.

The view of the duomo's campanile completing a circle with the Torrazzo's front pillars urged me to take a photo.

Paella for two hundred

Oscar, sweating in front, is mixing the rice and Johny below is adding the broth.

The restaurant were I use to lunch makes untasty rice on thursdays, they pretend to call it paella. I've allways belived that it was imposible to cook a good paella for a large amount of people. Oscar and Johny this summer have proved that, even with the limited equipment, you can make a decent paella for ~200.

Congratulations guys!
