Mercado de Correos

The old National Post and Telegraph Service building, abandoned in the late 1980s, was built in 1930 (designed by architect Pedro Muguruza). This building has been renovated between 2017 and 2018, and, since November 2018, it has become a gourmet market, where you can go for tapas, although it is not cheap. (I have to go to get something and take some pictures).

January'19 Theme Day. Best Photo of the Year.

First of all, Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2019!
The first day of the year, as tradition at citydailyphoto community, the selected Theme Day is: Best Photo of the Year (for each blog of the community).
Although last year I hav published only a few pictures (118), it was not easy to select only one photo so, below there is a second one.
The first one was published on June 2018. It could be a way to show what it is happening with this blog: is it oppening a new door? Some problems, plus a very busy year did not let me to publish as I liked.
About picture below. This photo, maybe, I could not take it again, because they are burying the train tracks passing through the city. About this picture, click on the following link. (Posted on July 2018).
I was not publishing on Theme Day since August 2018. I missed.

Bye-Bye 2018

Although it does not look like it, this photo is taken in the last days of 2018. With a maximum temperature of 20 ºC, it is being a Christmas time very lonely (which is appreciated). At night, about 3ºC (in some towns of the Murcia Region, -1ºC).
For that, 2018 is gone, and a hopeful 2019 is about to begin.

Lighting of the City

At Glorieta, and with a mapping of the Town Hall facade, the lighting of the Christmas lights has been inaugurated throughout the city (December, 18th 2018).
The best, a concert from the main balcony of the Town Hall, by the hand of Al Dual and his band. Who is Al dual. It is a Murcian musician who: "Al Dual, who performed a great show on Feb 11th 2018 at the Graceland Theater in Memphis (Tennessee), won the award of "Best Rockabilly Male" during the gala of the 5th Edition Ameripolitan Music Awards on Feb 13th. Despite the tough competition he had in his category, because of the prize was disputed with such great artists like Art Adams or Levi Dexter, but finally was Al Dual who took the well-deserved award!!" (Source: aldual.com)
Here, all the results of that contest at Memphis on memphisflyer.com

Also, El Churra Choir made a collaboration on two Christmas songs with Al Dual.

Veronicas on Xmas Time

At background, "Mercado de Veronicas" illuminated with xmas lights.
"The market place "Mercado de Verónicas", in the place where it is located, was a customs space back in the 15th century where the tax rates or taxes applied to merchandise entering or leaving the city were charged, thus creating a place of commercial exchange. In 1899 grows with the existence of a fish market and a small square of supplies with vendors, coffee shops and taverns. Between 1912 and 1916 the architect Pedro Cerdán designed the Modernist style building that we currently know, becoming a symbol for Murcia and one of the most popular market places."
